Solar power is a renewable, alternative energy. Solar cells are semiconductor devices which convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. Also known as photovoltaics (PV) these cells can power electrical loads such as charging batteries, operating motors and any number of electrical loads.
Solar electric systems are self-contained as they are independent of the utility grid. Your electricity will continue to run even if the grid power fails. Solar power is non-polluting, requires little or no maintenance, is easily installed and environmentally friendly.
