A photovoltaic installation typically includes an array of photovoltaic modules or panels, an inverter,batteries and interconnection wiring. Solar Panels use light energy (photons) from the sun to generate electricity through Photo-Voltaic effect (not to be confused with photo-electric effect). The majority of modules use wafer-based crystalline silicon cells or a thin-film cell based on cadmium telluride or silicon
Water Seasonal Storage (where summer solar energy is used for winter heating by just raising the temperature by a few degrees of several million litres of water (numerous pilot housing projects in Germany and elsewhere use this concept).
Greenhouse Effect: a glass plate is placed above the collector plate which will trap the radiated heat within the airspace below it.
