What is solar photovoltaic electricity?


Answer by  jagadeesan (17)

It use both direct and scattered sunlight to create electricity. However, the amount of power generated depends on energy reaches


Answer by  TheAnswerFairy (2345)

Solar energy is the energy that comes from the sun. This energy can be collected through the use of solar panels, also known as photovoltaic cells. Once collected, this energy can be used to power anything that would be powered with any other type of electricity.

Photovoltaic technology allows the direct conversion of the sun's energy in electricity. There are various kind of pv panels, such as mono and polycristalline silicon, and thin film panels. The main difference between them is the efficiency. This power source is quite expensive nowadays but has no co2 emission and a quite long life span.


Answer by  jhitchin (92)

Solar photovoltaic electricity is electricity generated when sunlight (including UV radiation) hits a solar cell causing electrons to become excited. This creates an electrical current.


Answer by  Addy (162)

Solar cells are combined to capture the sun, or more exactly, photons. Photons are the most fundamental parts of light. The photons subsequently mix with very small particles of negative electricity, or electrons. They merge and we have electricity, or the 'photovoltaic effect. ' An example of solar photovoltaic electricity in action is the solar panel.
