Each of these two forms of solar energy requires the manufacture of two separate types of solar panels. One is called a "solar collector" which is used to heat water and then store it in a tank for distribution when needed. The other kind of panel is called a "solar panel", or more formally, a "photovoltaic panel". Solar panels collect the light radiation from the Sun and convert it into direct current electricity, which can then be converted to alternating current using an inverter.
Using a Solar systems Queensland at your home or office can help meet your various energy needs. A solar panel in the solar system absorbs photons of light from the Sun and converts them into an electric current. Solar panels convert photons of light into electrical current by a process known as the "photovoltaic effect". This means that sunlight is causing electrons in a solar panel to become excited. These electrons are then directed into an electric current by a built-in electromagnetic field. This direct current electricity can be used to power many electric loads. It can also be "inverted" to alternating current electricity which can be used to power items in a home or business.
