Large photovoltaic solar panels currently provide electricity for many homes and commercial buildings in Long Island, NY. There has also been an increasing tendency to use smaller photovoltaic systems to provide electricity for pumps, road signs, telephone boxes, streetlights, and more. Empire Clean Energy Supply is a renewable energy company that believes an innovative approach to the use of photovoltaics and the rapidly developing technology tied to them will be the key to its success.
At the most basic level, the cells in photovoltaic systems convert sunlight into electricity through the interaction of photons and electrons within a semiconductor material. To create a cell in photovoltaic solar panels, a material such as silicone is doped with atoms from an element with one more or one less electron than what occurs in its matching substance (e.g., silicone).
A thin layer of each material is joined to form a junction. Photons, striking the cell, cause this mismatched electron to be dislodged, creating a current as it moves across the junction. Through a grid of physical connections, the current is gathered within photovoltaic systems. Various currents and voltages can be supplied through series and parallel arrays of cells. This is how photovoltaic solar panels in Long Island, NY are so effective.
