Solar PV panels, also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic cells. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.
They do not need direct sunlight to be functional, they can still generate some electrical output on a cloudy day.
Traditional solar cells are made from silicon, are usually flat-plate, and generally are the most efficient.
