How does solar electricity work?Photovoltaic (PV) modules convert sunlight into electricity PV modules also commonly referred to as PV panels, are made up of a connected group of PV cells to form a usable size and electricity output. They have no moving parts and are therefore reliable and require little maintenance. PV panels can be expected to last 20 years or more. PVs are suitable for use in urban areas as they take up little space and make no noise.
1 Solar Electric Panels generate electricity when exposed to sunlight.
2 These panels are connected to an inverter which makes the generated electricity suitable for household/ business use.
3 All this generated electricity is either consumed by the household or fed into the grid for credit under your state's applicable feed-in tariff.
