So what exactly are solar panels? Solar panels, also known as photovoltaic modules are interconnected assemblies of solar cells. Solar panels are made up of solar cells which absorbs the energy from the sun. To utilize the energy absorbed by the panels, the unit is connected to a battery bank. This battery bank stores the energy which could then be used to power up appliances and other items that is powered by electricity.

But the thing is, once you have the solar panels and the battery bank installed, you don’t have to worry about anything else.
