Storyboard Text

  • Solar cells get their power from the sun but what if the sun rays were hitting the cells from different angles? 
  • If the angle of the sun is right over, in front of the cell, and below the  solar cell would the power produced increase? 
  • When the sun is located above of the solar cells and the sun rays are directly above the solar cells that's when the rays are more intense and direct.
  • If the sun rays are at a 90 degree angle then that's when the sun is usually sitting lower in the sky. This means that the sun is still giving off solar energy but not as much. 
  • So when the sun is going down the amount of power produced isn't as high as it would be if the sun was right above it. 
  • The location of the sun does affect the amount of power produced. 
  • The sun’s angle in the sky affects the amount of light received on Earth so the location of the sun affects how much power it produce.
  • This means that the sun's rays in different angles collect different amounts of power.
