  1. Photovoltaic Cells:

At the heart of every solar panel is a network of photovoltaic cells called PV cells. These cells are made from semiconductor materials, such as silicon, with unique properties allowing them to convert sunlight into electricity.

When sunlight hits the surface of a PV cell, it excites electrons within the material, creating an electric current that can be harnessed to power electrical devices in your home.


  1. Sunlight Conversion:

Solar panels are designed to capture sunlight and convert it into usable electricity through a process called the photovoltaic effect. This process occurs when photons, or particles of light, strike the surface of the solar panel and are absorbed by the PV cells.

As the photons interact with the semiconductor material, they transfer their energy to the electrons, causing them to move and generate an electric current.


  1. Solar Power Generation:

Once the sunlight is converted into electricity by the PV cells, it can power your home’s appliances, lighting, and electrical devices. Any excess energy generated by your solar panels can be stored in batteries for use during periods of low sunlight or exported back to the grid for credit on your electricity bill.

With solar panel installation from Troop Solar, you can enjoy reliable, renewable energy that reduces reliance on traditional energy sources and saves you money in the long run.
