What is Solar PV?

Photovoltaic or "PV" cells, which are made of semiconductors, convert sunlight directly into electricity, taking advantage of the earth’s most essential source of clean, renewable energy, the sun. PV cells are the essence of clean energy. With no moving parts, they burn no fuel and, consequently, generate no pollution. Absolutely silent, they convert sunlight directly into electricity, which can then be used for a virtually limitless range of applications.
