Is the electricity generated by PV solar versus solar thermal any different in nature?

    Photovoltaic cells produce continuous direct current electricity, which needs to be converted to alternating for most applications. Solar thermal technologies for generating electricity generally work by heating up fluids, which can then power some sort of heat engines like steam or gas turbines. Those will produce alternating current.
