Photovoltaic Solar Panels (PV)

Made in Minnesota SolarSunshine converted cleanly to electricity

Clean, free, and virtually unlimited radiant energy is supplied to us by the sun, but it can’t become electricity without photovoltaic technology. Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels are made of silicon cells, which when hit with light (“photo-”) release electrons (“-voltaic”). The released energy from each of the cells is collected and delivered as direct current (DC) voltage. The DC voltage can then be used to power DC devices, stored in batteries, or converted to alternating current (AC) voltage using a device called an inverter.

Once converted, AC voltage can be used for household power (like the conventional AC power from your wall outlet). On a system that is “grid-tied” (connected to the utility company’s power grid), surplus AC voltage can be “sent back” to the utility grid for credit on your monthly bill.
