The sun is source of infinite energy and the energy produced by sun is called Solar Energy. The amount of solar energy reaching the surface of earth is so vast that in one year it is about twice as much as will ever be obtained from all of the Earth’s non-renewable sources of coal, oil, natural gas and mined uranium combined. But most of this free and clean solar energy goes waste in the atmosphere. But with viable technology now available, this energy from sun can be directly converted to electricity by the use of solar Photo-Voltaic (PV) cells. A large no. of cells are arranged together to form a Solar panel. When sunlight falls on these solar panels, it gets converted to electricity and this electricity produced from the sunlight is called Solar Power. The complete system generating the solar energy is called Solar system.
