How Do Solar Panels Work ?

There are two main types of solar panel, one type heats water and the other type produces electricity. Both types of solar panels are increasingly popular for domestic, industrial and commercial applications.

Solar water heating panels are also called solar 'thermal' panels or solar 'collectors'. This type of solar panel uses direct & indirect energy from the sun to heat water in a very simple and efficient process.

Photovoltaic solar panels produce electricity. Solar electric panels are also called solar 'pv' panels or solar 'modules'. This type of solar panel has no moving parts and produces current when exposed to high levels of light.
