Solar power is the renovation of sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or circuitously using intense solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking methods to focus a big area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic converts light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two sorts of solar energy needs the manufacture of two discrete forms of solar panels.
One is called a solar collector which is used to warm water and then supply it in a tank for dispersal when desired. The other sort of panel is called a solar panel, or more properly, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels gather the light radiation from the Sun and change it into direct current electricity, that can then be altered to alternating current using an inverter. Intense Solar Power (CSP) systems apply lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large part of sunlight into a small beam.
