Wonder how do solar panels work?

When Sunlight reaches one spot on the Earth, Solar technologies capture this radiation and turn it into useful forms of energy. Mainly, there are two types of solar energy technologies—photovoltaics (PV) and concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP).

PV is utilized in solar panels, and solar panels are made up of many solar cells. Solar cells are made of silicon, like semiconductors. They are constructed with a positive layer and a negative layer, which together create an electric field, just like in a battery. When the sun shines onto solar cells of the panel, energy from the sunlight is absorbed by the solar cells in the panel. This energy creates electrical charges that move in response to an internal electrical field in the cell, causing electricity to flow and generate electricity.

Therefore, multiple cells make up a solar panel, and multiple panels (modules) can be wired together to form a solar array. The more panels you can deploy, the more energy you can expect to generate.

How will I know how much solar energy is being produced?
A monitoring meter will be installed where the energy output generated from the solar system will be injected into your electrical system. You can easily access the solar performance from our monitoring app.

How long will my Solar Energy System last?
Generally, we will design a Solar Energy System that will last for more than 25 years, subject to the suitability of your roof top and your individual goals.

How do clouds and other shades affect Solar Panel Performance?
Clouds and shades reduce the intensity of irradiance falling on the solar panels. When analysing the energy yield of solar panel system, we take cloud and shades cover into account. As there is multiple peak sun hour also known as the irradiance data in Malaysia, Sunview analyse the irradiance data from credible sources such as Meteonorm, Solargis and Meteodology.
