Solar Powering the Production of Clean Energy

Maggie Kearns | August 2018

Solar panels and their ability to produce electricity can seem like a very complex process. To put things simply, solar panels are made up of small units called photovoltaic cells. These cells have the ability to convert sunlight to electricity. This conversion happens when particles of light, known as photons, knock electrons from their atoms, generating electricity. Metal conductive plates in the panels collect the electricity and transfer it to wires.
