They are made up of many small photovoltaic cells that are linked together like a sandwich to convert sunlight into electricity. It is composed of one or two layers of silicon which is a conducting material.
When light hits the cell, it generates electric fields across the layer this is what creates the electricity flows. The more light it gets the more electric flow it will get.
Kilowatt peak, kWp, is the amount of energy the PV cells generate inn full sunlight.
Improvements are currently being made to the sell to allow it to harness ultraviolet and infrared rays which are invisible spectrum lights, to improve its function.
Generating your own energy is good and sending it to the grid to get extra coins is also great but what could be a true pocket saver is having your own energy storage unit, which we also provide, and save enough energy to use perhaps next month taking away 80% grid reliance.
