Solar power is the alteration of sunlight into electrical energy, either directly using photovoltaic (PV), or not directly using resolute solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a huge area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic converts light into electric current using the photoelectric effect. Each of these two kinds of solar energy necessitates the manufacture of two single sorts of solar panels.
One is labeled a solar collector that is used to heat water and then stock it in a tank for distribution when needed. The other form of panel is called a solar panel, or more formally, a photovoltaic panel. Solar panels gather the light radiation from the Sun and change it into direct current electricity, that can then be altered to alternating current using an inverter. Resolute Solar Power (CSP) systems apply lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a huge part of sunlight into a little shaft of light.
