Did you know that the sun produces enough energy in one day to supply the entire world for a year? We give you the ABC about solar energy.
Amazing, right? As human beings, time has come to understand how solar energy works. Because of global warming, this is the only real way to immediately and quickly be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
So, let’s start from the beginning:
How is photovoltaic solar energy produced and Why is it considered eco-friendly?
The steps for its production, distribution, and commercialization are much more eco-friendly than those of fossil energy, why? Firstly, as we already told you, solar energy comes exclusively from a renewable source: the sun. Solar rays are made up of photons, travel by means of electromagnetic waves and reach the silicone cells of the plate to produce energy directly within the solar cell.
This energy production process inside the panel is called the photovoltaic phenomenon and consists of accelerating protons and neutrons to produce energy.
Solar energy is categorized as renewable due to the fact that it comes from a clean source and unlike fossil fuels, it does not use nonrenewable sources, such as coal, natural gas, nuclear energy, or oil.
How do the panels work?
The operating mechanism of the panels occurs when the sun’s radiation affects one of the faces of a photoelectric cell (cells that the solar panels are made of). An electrical potential difference is produced between both faces that cause Electrons to jump from one place to another, thus generating electric current.
The more intense the light, the greater the flow of electricity. Subsequently, the transmission of photovoltaic cells converts sunlight into electricity in the form of a direct current. To improve the result obtained, an inverter is used that transforms this energy into an alternating current.
