Photovoltaic cells are semi-conductor devices that generate electricity when exposed to the sun. This type of solar technology uses the photoelectric effect and converts selected wavelengths of light into electricity.
Solar cell efficiency tells us the amount of solar insolation that is converted into electricity. It usually lies between 12.5 and 15%. In laboratories, scientists are working on solar cell efficiency constantly.
A solar pool pump offers several advantages. For example, it reduces electricity costs, the installation is easy, and little maintenance is required. Furthermore, there are no fuel costs and it can operate independently without human attendance.
