Photovoltaics (PV) is the conversion of light into electricity using semiconducting materials that exhibit the photovoltaic effect, a phenomenon studied in physics, photochemistry, and electrochemistry.. PV has become the cheapest source of electrical power in regions with a high solar potential, with price bids as low as US$/kWh in Panel prices have dropped by the factor of photovoltaic comes from the Greek meaning “light” (photo) and “electrical” (voltaic). When the sunlight hits the photovoltaic cells, part of the energy is absorbed into the semiconductor. When that happens the energy loosens the electrons which allow them to flow freely. The flow of these electrons is a current and when you put.
