What is Solar Energy? How does it works?

Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis.
What is Solar Energy? How does it works?

The energy that we get from sun in the form of heat radiations is known as solar energy. These heat radiations takes photons with them on the surface of earth.

According to Wikipedia, more than 384.6 Septillion watts of radiations hit the surface of the earth every second.

It is enough for almost 500,000 years of the current needs of our civilization.

Well, coming to your next question how does it works?

Solar panels are used to convert sun’s energy into electricity.

Here’s how they work?

Solar panels are made of semiconductor materials. These are those material having conductivity lies between insulator & conductors.

When heat radiations hit the surface of solar panels, the flow of electrons & holes takes place & as a result current flows.
