How Do Solar Panels Work at Night?

Throughout the day, solar panels are busy absorbing the sun’s rays and generating electricity for your every energy need. A solar system is made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells, and these cells are made up of materials called semiconductors absorbs the sun’s heat and light. Photovoltaic simply means they convert sunlight into electricity. So, if a solar panel needs sunlight to make energy, what happens when the sun goes down? How do solar panels... Read More
