What is Solar Electricity and How Does it Work?

What is Solar Electricity and How Does it Work?

Solar energy is a renewable energy source derived from the sun’s radiation. This energy can be harnessed and converted into electricity or heat for various applications. Solar technology primarily involves the use of solar panels, which are composed of photovoltaic (PV) cells. These cells convert sunlight directly into electricity through the photovoltaic effect.


  1. Sunlight Hits the Solar Panels: Solar panels, typically installed on rooftops or in open fields, are made up of many PV cells. When sunlight strikes these cells, it creates an electric field across layers of silicon in the cell.

  2. Generation of Direct Current (DC) Electricity: The PV cells convert the sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity.

  3. Inverter Converts DC to AC: Since most homes and businesses use alternating current (AC) electricity, an inverter is used to convert the DC electricity generated by the solar panels into AC electricity.

  4. Electricity is Used or Stored: The converted electricity can be used immediately to power electrical appliances and systems. Any excess electricity can be stored in batteries for later use or fed back into the grid if the system is connected to a utility grid, potentially earning credits or revenue.
