Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells that capture sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. This electricity is then converted into alternating current (AC) electricity through an inverter, which can be used to power your home or business. Solar panels are typically installed on rooftops or in open areas that receive ample sunlight. They require minimal maintenance and can generate electricity for many years. Discover how solar panels work and the benefits they offer for sustainable energy production.
