Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electrical energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or not directly using intense solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking procedures to center a great area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic transfers light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two kinds of solar energy requires the manufacture of two separate sorts of solar panels.
One is named a solar collector that is used to warm water and then stock it in a tank for dispersal when wanted. The other sort of panel is called a solar panel, or more formally, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels collect the light energy from the Sun and alter it into direct current electricity, which can then be switched to alternating current using an inverter. Resolute Solar Power (CSP) systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small sunbeam.
