Solar cells, also called photovoltaic cells or PV cells, convert sunlight directly into electricty. PV gets it name from the provess of converting light, photons, to electricity, voltage and current, which is called the PV effect. The PV effect was discovered in 1954 when scientists at Bell Telephone discovered that silicon, an element found in sand, created an electric charge when exposed to sunlight. Today, worldwide, people power their homes and businesses with individual solar PV systems.
