What Is Solar Energy?

Solar energy is radiant energy emitted by the sun. This energy comes in the form of solar radiation, which is harvested by solar panels to create electrical power. Photovoltaic (PV) cells, made up of materials called semiconductors link up to create a solar panel which absorbs particles of sunlight and converts it into direct current (DC) electricity. Now that you know the answer to the question, “ What is solar energy,” let’s take a closer... Read More

Measuring Solar Power

Some say the amount of energy reaching the surface of the Earth every hour is greater than the amount of energy used by the Earth’s population over an entire year. So when the sunshine hits a photovoltaic solar electric panel generating DC power, a natural question is, “How much power is my solar panel generating?” Measuring solar energy can help position your solar panel for maximum efficiency, so let’s start with the basics.Understanding... Read More
