Solar Power Plant (OFF Grid/Hybrid)

A photovoltaic cell, commonly called a solar cell or PV, is a technology used to convert solar energy directly into electricity. A photovoltaic cell is usually made from silicon alloys.

Particles of solar energy, known as photons, strike the surface of a photovoltaic cell between two semiconductors.

These semiconductors exhibit a property known as the photoelectric effect, which causes them to absorb the photons and release electrons. The electrons are captured in the form of an electric current – in other words, electricity.
