A Project On Solar Power

Solar Power

Solar power is the conversion of sunlight to electricity either using photovoltaics or consentrated solar power (CSP). CSP systems uses lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to take a lot of sunlight and focus it into a small beam. Photovoltaics convert light into  electricity using the photoelectric effect. Commercial concentrated solar powerplants were first developed in the 1980s. The 354 MW SEGS CSP installation is the largest solar powerplant in the world, located in the Mojave Desert of California. Other large CSP plants include the Solnova Solar Power Station and the Andasol Solar Power Station, Both in spain.

And Some Facts And Pictures Of Solar Panels

Solar Panels

Solar panels are packaged connected of photovoltaic cells. solar panels can be used as a component of a larger photovoltaic system to generate and supply electricity. Each panel is rated by it's DC output power under standard test conditions, and typically ranges from 100 to 320 watts. The efficiency of the panel determines the area of the panel given the same rated output.
