    Photosynthesis is the name of the process that converts sunlight into usable energy form that a plant can use. Photovoltaic technology is what we humans use to convert sunlight into electricity, which is a form of energy we can use.

      Do you happen to know why we wouldn’t call the process of humans converting sunlight into electricity “photosynthesis” as well? It seems like we’re basically synthesizing sunlight into a form of energy we can use. Or am I totally forgetting all my biology from high school?
