Solar power is the renovation of sunlight into electrical energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or indirectly using intense solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking methods to spotlight a great area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic converts light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two sorts of solar energy requires the manufacture of two separate kinds of solar panels.
One is entitled a solar collector which is used to warm up water and then stock it in a tank for distribution when required. The other kind of panel is called a solar panel, or more officially, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels gather the light radiation from the Sun and alter it into direct current electricity, which can then be changed to alternating current using an inverter. Concerted Solar Power (CSP) systems utilize lenses or mirrors and tracing systems to center a huge area of sunlight into a small ray.
