What is Solar PV?
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) is a solar panel technology that converts the sun’s energy into direct current electricity by using semiconductors.
Hence, photovoltaics is the conversion of light into electricity using semiconducting materials that exhibit the photovoltaic effect, a phenomenon studied in physics, photochemistry and electrochemistry. Thus, a photovoltaic system employs solar panels, each comprising a number of solar cells, which generate electrical power.
Additionally, Solar PV has specific advantages as an energy source: once installed. Its operation generates no pollution and no greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, it shows simple scalability in respect of power needs and silicon has large availability in the Earth’s crust.
