Ever wonder what a solar panel actually is?
A solar panel is a tool to absorb and harness the rays of energy produced by the sun. A solar panel converts these rays into useable energy to be used for heating or as electricity.
Did you know that solar panels are made using raw silicon which extracted from sand. The purity of the silicon is essential to it’s usefulness in the photovoltaics industry. to be used in solar panel construction the silicon must be 99.999% pure.
To generate power the solar panel takes advantage of the semi conducting properties of the silicon.
