Solar panel definition
A solar panel is a device to take advantage of solar energy. It can also be called a solar module.
This type of solar panel works by circulating a fluid inside it that captures the heat energy coming from the sun. This fluid will later heat the water from another circuit that is with which we will shower or use for the heating circuit.
In the case of photovoltaic panels are used for photovoltaic installations in which the radiation of the Sun is used to generate electric energy through the photovoltaic effect.
These are solar panels generally composed of silicon that take advantage of the energy of the photons present in the light to make a silicon electron jump. By the sum of several of these electrons an electric current is generated.
