How do solar panels work? - Richard Komp

The Earth intercepts a lot of solar power: 173,000 terawatts. That’s 10,000 times more power than the planet’s population uses. So is it possible that one day the world could be completely reliant on solar energy? Richard Komp examines how solar panels convert solar energy to electrical energy.

  1. I'm not sure but ,if anyone else wants to learn about build your own solar power charger try Magonsi Solar System Expert (do a google search ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my work buddy got excellent success with it.

  2. too many notions at the end of philanthropy. Buy land, build solar farms where it is sunny. build wind farms where it is windy. We cannot rely on the gov.

  3. So much misinformation about solar. It seems as though most solar salesmen don't want homeowners to have ALL the information they need to make a good decision. I made a video called "Should You Go Solar," where I go over all the things I think homeowners need to have considered. Thanks for fighting for our planet!

  4. There's enough solar energy to power humanity, but not enough silicone to create enough panels to power humanity as silicone is a non renewable resource.

  5. 1. it shouldn't matter if the supply of sun is inconsistent. we have power packs and stuff taht can store the excess energy for rainy days.

    2. u'd put more of them in the sunny dry deserty locations and areas near to the equator that have 2 summers each year.

    3. i can't wait for solar power panel technology improves. some day they'll be able to make it way more efficient than it is now. absorbing more power with less effort.

  6. interesting points ,if anyone else needs to find out about to install a solar power system video try Magonsi Solar System Expert (just google it ) ? Ive heard some decent things about it and my friend got amazing success with it.

  7. Finally an answer to my longstanding question about whether the solar panel can ever "run out" of electrons. Thank you!
