The Energy created by the sun can be converted into electricity.
One technology is PV (Solar Photovoltaic), and recent development had greatly improved its efficiency.
SunLight is made out of tiny particles called photons.
About 93 million miles later, they collide with a semiconductor of a solar panel here
The panel is made up of several individual cells. Each with a positive and a negative layer, which create an electric field.The photons from the sun hits the cells, and the energy allow electrons to flow within the panel, creating an electric current.
The electricity created is multiplied by the numbers of cells in each panel and numbers of panel in each solar array.
PV provide clean energy. It has no emissions and do not require water or fuel to produce power. PV can also be located wherever it is needed.
