Frequently Asked Questions

Check out our great FAQs and Answers for our Photovoltaic Solar Cells below:

What is the photoelectric effect of solar cells?

The photoelectric effect is the scientific principle that makes solar power possible. The photoelectric effect is the principle referring to when electrons are released by photons making an electrical current, which is what makes it possible for the harvesting of electricity through the use of solar cells.

When was the first solar cell used?

The first solar cell was created by Charles Fritt in 1883, the first solar cell had a very low conversion rate, with a solar light to electricity rate of one percent. Which is understandable as it was the first solar cell in history to be created.

Where are our commercial and broken cells manufactured?

Our commercial and broken cells are manufactured overseas. Right now 80% of solar products are manufactured overseas, making it more difficult to acquire domestic products.

What is a photovoltaic cell?

Photovoltaic cells refers to the solar cells which are responsible for converting light into electricity.


1) What is a solar cell?

A solar photovoltaic (PV) cell is an electrical device that converts the energy of light directly into electricity. Solar cells are the building blocks of solar panels.  Multiple cells in an integrated group, oriented in one plane, constitute a solar PV panel, also known as a PV module.

2) Some cells on your website have specifically listed watt and volt outputs.  How do you know each cell’s voltage and wattage?

Each cell listed with a particular list output is laser-cut to exacting specifications for precision quality control and guaranteed performance.

3) What can I do with an individual solar cell?

Solar cells are great for DIY projects such as constructing your own panel with precise specifications, as well as for experimentation and educational purposes.  Silicon Solar also carries all of the meters, flux, tabbing, and soldering accessories you need to build your own solar powered creation!
