Solar electricity (Photovoltaic)

Solar electricity is the name given to the harnessing of the sun's energy for electricity. Typically, the system works by placing semi-conductor photovoltaic cell panels on the roof.

When the sun shines on these panels, a voltage is created that can produce a direct electrical current, which is converted to an alternating electric current and can then be fed into the main electrical system.
