The science of solar is a fascinating one. Solar works by directing photons from the sun towards silicon cells. These photons impact or disrupt the electrons that form part of the silicon atoms that make up these cells. This causes them to fly free from their ‘orbit’ and, therefore, create an electric flow. In fact, it is a very simple energy conversion between the photons movement and the electrical disruption they cause. This electric flow is then directed towards wiring and allows it to travel to an inverter that then converts it into 240V AC electricity.
