A solar panel is a large rectangle flat plate, made up of many individual solar cells covered with a protective sheet of glass.

Solar cells are also called photovoltaic cells(PV cells) because they use sunlight .("photo" comes from the Greek word means ‘ light’) to generate electricity ( Volt ) . Also ‘ Photon ‘ means the energy packet which collects the energy from the sun & further transfers to the next cell through the motion of electrons.
