How do Solar Panels Work with the Sun to Help You?

By   June 23, 2019

Solar panels are manufactured by assembling photovoltaic (PV) cells. Photovoltaic cells are made by compressing together layers of semiconductors, usually silicon.

This is because sunlight contains photons. The process in which… Continue reading »
