Photovoltaic (PV) systems use wafers, typically made of crystalline silicon, that are sensitive to sunlight and produce a small direct current when exposed to light. When these PV cells, also known as solar cells, are combined into larger arrangements called modules, they produce an appreciable amount of electrical power with no moving parts, noise or harmful emissions.
