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.

How much electricity do solar panels produce in a year?

The answer to how much electricity solar panels will produce in a year is hard to answer because it depends on a number of different factors like weather, how clean the solar panels are, distance from the equator, what time during the day, shading and maximal output. But a very rough estimate for a 100 […]
