A solar panel is a device designed to absorb the sun’s rays and convert them into electricity or heat.
A solar panel, also known as a solar cell panel, photovoltaic (PV) module, or solar electric panel, comprises photovoltaic cells arranged in a framework for easy installation. The panels use sunlight to produce direct current electricity. A group of PV modules forms a PV panel, while an arrangement of PV panels is called an array. Photovoltaic systems supply solar electricity to power electrical equipment.
