"PV" Stands for "Photovoltaic"

Photovoltaic (PV) panels, are electronic devices that convert light energy into electricity.

Photons in the sun light interact with the semi-conducting materials in the panel's cells. The cells are the smaller sections of the panel, that convert the energy! 

You may hear solar panels referred to as "solar modules". 

PV has exploded in popularity over the years, and with it comes improved technology for a more competitive cost! 

It is great for the environment, and provides you energy independence!
