How does the sun change into electricity?

    You install solar panels. The sun energy is absorbed by the solar panels. The solar panels absorb the light energy from the sun and converts it into electricity.

    Here is the alleged simple explanation:

    1. Photons in sunlight hit the solar panel and are absorbed by semiconducting materials, such as silicon.
    2. Electrons (negatively charged) are knocked loose from their atoms, allowing them to flow through the material to produce electricity. Due to the special composition of solar cells, the electrons are only allowed to move in a single direction.
    3. An array of solar cells converts solar energy into a usable amount of direct current (DC) electricity.”



    And a digram that might help:
