The flat photovoltaic cells are easy to transport and are quite light in weight. All you have to do is identify the place in your garden or backyard or on the roof as to where you wish to build a solar panel. This place should receive maximum sun’s rays and heat and should be exposed to the sun directly.
Place the photovoltaic cells flatly on the ground or roof one after the other and arrange them horizontally. The sun’s rays falls on the solar panel and is collected and stored in it. These panels convert the heat into electricity and it’s ready for use. In the nights or on a cloudy day when there is no sunlight the solar panel has storage facilities built in to store for a couple of days.
