Solar Panel Info

Sam Wasson's comprehensive overview of PV solar panels.

He discusses solar panel history, types, materials, efficiency, price points, and longevity.

What is a Solar Panel?

Solar panels are devices designed to collect solar energy and convert it into usable electricity. The standard solar panel sandwiches two semiconductive materials, typically silicon, between a housing, such as metal or glass. As light rays, or photons, pass through the semiconductive material, they knock electrons free from the atoms, generating a small electrical current. This current is then captured and sent to your home, used as power, or sent to a solar battery and stored for later use.
