Physics of a Solar Pannel

Starting at the barebones of a description all you have is an energy conversion, Solar energy into electrical energy. I'm sure you are familiar with the panels on your calculator, or maybe you were'nt. But the Photovoltaic cells rely on something called the photoelectric effect: the ability of matter to emit electrons when a light is shone on it.

In the case of outdoor panels you have the photons from sunlight knocking free loose electrons from the silicon that is in the panals, a semi- conductor, to create electricity. blogentry-3449-0-09872100-1415390036_thu
