Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Panels uses silicone crystals, sliced into
thin layers which have the special property of creating electricity
when exposed to sunlight. PV is a viable renewable energy option, but
has the disadvantage of high cost and relatively low efficiency.
Commercially available panels have peak efficiency levels of around
15%, although this is set to improve with continued research.
