How do solar panels work?

Solar energy works by converting the sun’s energy into electricity that can be used to power your residential or commercial appliances. But how does this happen? Read ahead because we will be answering all your questions about solar energy in this blog.

Sun, which is one of the biggest sources of power in the solar system, releases tiny packets of energy which are known as photons. They travel all the way from the sun to the Earth and the number of photons released in one hour are enough to satisfy the global energy needs for one whole year. Well that’s a lot. However, not all these photons are utilized and converted to electricity. Power generation from solar panels in Pakistan is still a relatively recent concept. However, awareness regarding this technology is spreading rapidly and there has been a huge growth in the usage of solar power over the past few years.


So how exactly does this process take place?

Solar Panels are installed to do this task. As soon as the photons hit a solar panel, they knock out the electrons from the atoms. With the presence of conductors on the positive and negative sides of cell, it creates an electrical circuit. When electrons pass through the electrical circuits, electricity is generated. Therefore, the more panels you install, the more electrons will be released and the more electricity will be generated. And this is how it goes.

However, if you are worried about the number of solar panels to install in your company because you might end up under or over producing electricity, let your solution provider take care of it. At Reon, a team of expert engineers calculate your energy requirements and advise you accordingly.
