Solar To Electrical Energy

Follow the trails of non-conventional energy...

Follow the trails of renewable energy where the Unendying embrace of Sun's solar energy is converted into electrical energy to brighten the homes to the fullest.

Innovations is a boon...

With the innovation in invention of photovoltaic cells, worldwide distress of depleting natural energy resources has come to an end. A photovoltaic cell (PV cell) is a specialized semiconductor diode that converts visible light into direct current.

Solar to Electrical mechanism

The abundant sun rays hit the solar panel installed in the area where their are no obstacles most preferably roof tops.The solar panels consists of photovoltaic cells(PV).

Each photovoltaic cell is basically a sandwich made up of two slices of semi-conducting material, usually silicon — the same stuff used in microelectronics. To work, photovoltaic cells need to establish an electric field. Much like a magnetic field, which occurs due to opposite poles, an electric field occurs when opposite charges are separated. To get this field, manufacturers "dope" silicon with other materials, giving each slice of the sandwich a positive or negative electrical charge.

This electrical charge generated is then rendered to electrical appliances like mixers, TV sets etc. And the extra electricity generated is transmitted to the grid.

Types of solar panels

Monocrystalline Solar Panels (Mono-SI)

This type of solar panels (made of monocrystalline silicon) is the purest one. You can easily recognise them from the uniform dark look and the rounded edges. Monocrystalline panels have a high power output, occupy less space, and last the longest. Of course, that also means they are the most expensive of the bunch.

Polycrystalline Solar Panels (Poly-SI)

You can quickly distinguish these panels because this type of solar panels has squares, its angles are not cut, and it has a blue, speckled look. This leads to a lower final price but also lower efficiency (around 15%), lower space efficiency, and a shorter lifespan since they are affected by hot temperatures to a greater degree.

Thin-Film Solar Cells (TFSC)

If you are looking for a less expensive option, you might want to look into thin-film. Thin-film solar panels are manufactured by placing one or more films of photovoltaic material onto a substrate. It's lifespan is shorter than the mono- and polycrystalline types of solar panels. However, they can be a good option to choose among the different types of solar panels where a lot of space is available.
