How do solar panels convert the energy into electricity?

1 Answer

Solar panels consist solar cells that convert solar energy into electricity.


In solar panels there are solar cells.Solar cells contain silicon boron layer and silicon arsenic layer soldered to form a sandwich covered by glass or plastic layer .Now when sunlight falls on each cell then loosley held electrons of silicon start move from up to down creating a potential difference.Many such interconnected cells forming a solar panel create a large potential difference generating electricity
