A solar cell is a device that directly converts the energy of light into electrical energy through the photovoltaic effect. Solar cells or photovoltaic cells are made based on the principle of the photovoltaic effect. They convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. But, a single photovoltaic cell does not produce enough amount of electricity.
Silicon crystals are laminated into p-type and n-type layers, stacked on top of each other. Light striking the crystals induces the “photovoltaic effect,” which generates electricity.
Advantages of solar cell
- Solar cells provide Economy-friendly energy
- Solar cells provide a great opportunity to create savings on your electric bill
- The most important thing is that solar energy is a truly renewable energy source.
- Maintenance cost is too less.
