Welcome to this installment of SPW Classroom on Solar Panels.
Solar panels are the most recognizable part of a solar array. They absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity that is then fed through wires and inverters to be used by homes and businesses. In general, all solar panels consist of glass or polymer layers surrounding solar cells. But technologies are pushing solar panels to new designs and advancements every day.
Here you will find resources describing the various types of solar panels and their many manufacturing categories. These tutorials are all designed to give you a better understanding of this important component of solar arrays.
