What Is A Hybrid Solar System?

The word ‘hybrid’ in the field of green energy has been used to refer to two sources such as solar and wind. However, in the solar world, ‘hybrid’ refers to a solar power system that has both energy storage and connection to the electricity grid. The hybrid solar system is one of the three types of solar power systems (off grid, on grid, hybrid) that

How do solar cells work?

In 1839, physicist Edmond Becquerel discovered the photovoltaic effect while experimenting with a cell made of metal electrodes in a conducting solution. He noted that the cell generated more electricity when exposed to light.  Albert Einstein had to bring attention to solar energy and its

How to calculate solar cell efficiency?

Solar radiation is electromagnetic radiation released by the Sun. While every area on Earth receives some sunlight over the year, the amount of solar radiation that reaches any spot on the Earth’s surface differs. Solar cells catch this radiation and transform it into useful forms

How to Select a Solar Charge Controller?

For most people, solar power generators are a simple proposition – they work until the sun shines. Connect them with a compatible set of equipment and let them out in the sun. They will do the rest themselves. But what to do when you want

How do solar lights work?

Solar power refers to the conversion of sunlight into electricity. One of the ways to achieve this is through photovoltaics, where a solar cell first absorbs the sun rays and then creates a current that is transferred to wires through the flow of loose electrons.
