The sun’s power presents the cleanest and most widely available energy resource for generating electricity. Did you know that the sun delivers more energy on the surface of the earth in an hour than all humanity uses in one year?
Electricity generated from the sun is just as good or even better compared to other methods of generation e.g. from coal, nuclear, geothermal etc. The basic component required to harness the sun’s energy to produce electricity is the solar panel. There are many types of solar panels available but the most popular are mono-crystalline, polycrystalline and amorphous thin film.
Depending on the intended application, electricity generated from the sun can either be used directly from the solar panels sometimes over inverters or stored in batteries for use at night or when the sky is overcast.
