Price per Wp refers to the amount of power that a solar cell or panel generates under real-life conditions in relation to its cost

Can solar cells used in mobile phones?
No, cell phones draw too much power to be supplied by solar cells, unless you used a large solar panel. But you certainly can't build a solar cell into the back of the phone like you would a solar calculator. For example, one web source says a cell phone draws about 1 W. Another web source says solar panels can put out about 1.2 W for 100 cm2 in bright sunlight. So to power the...

What do you need to make a solar panel?
You need an absorbent material to make a solar panel. This solar panel needs to be made flat and laid out in the sunlight.

What is the definition of a solar panel?
A solar panel is a device that collects and converts solar energy into electricity or heat.

How does solar energy produce electricity?
Solar electric panels are made up of silicon, the same thing that makes up sand. When sunlight hits a solar panel, it makes electrons in the silicon move around. The electrons flow through wires that were built into the solar panel and hey presto! - we have electricity! Solar energy can produce electricity by the photo-voltaic process (Solar Cell) and can be produce via a heat engine process (Solar Thermal).

How does solar get its?
Solar systems get their energy from the sun. Solar energy is captured by a solar panel, or collector. This panel converts solar energy to electrical energy.

Materials of solar power?
In a crystalline solar electric panel, the light of the sun interacts with a semiconductor material (usually silicon) in the PV cell to free electrons and produce an electric current.

What alternative energy sources creates electricity but not by turning a turbine?
Photo-Electric effect, involves a solar panel, quickly.. solar panel absorbs light, electron transfers from one place in the cell to another " i.e it has a preferred direction of travel, electrical current".

describe how solar panel is used in the generation of electricity

Why are cytoplasm like solar panels in an amusement park?
the chloroplast is like the solar panel because the chloroplast uses sunlight energy to give the plant (or cell itself) raw energhy. And the solar panels use sunlight to help the rides move with energy.

What is a solar photovoltaic - PV - panel?
A PV panel is a Photovoltaic conversion tool used for converting the sun's rays into usable electricity via an excitement of Protons and Electrons in a solar cell. They are typically 3ftx6ft in size. a solar panel is a energy converter A solar panel converts the suns rays into electricity. Solar panels area group of 36 solar cells arranged on a board to produce a level of usable power. Each cell produces just under 1...

Is a photovoltaic cell the same thing as a solar panel?
It really is. A tiny solar panel collects sunlight, which then creates an electrical current. This current passes through a tiny electromagnet, which cause a switch to be held open so that power can't get to the light. When the sun goes down, power is no longer being created at the solar panel, which in turn causes the electromagnet to stop being magnetized. This causes the switch to close, which then cause current to flow...

What can you do with solar power?
We can use solar power to heat water or cook,etc... Solar power can be created by using a solar panel and the sun. The sun will shine on the solar panel and that will make electricity or energy.
