The Quantum Physics of Solar Panels

quantum solar grass valley caHow do solar panels really work? How do we harness energy from sunlight? What does Photovoltaic mean?

Listen to a humorous, for sure intelligent podcast where a Physicist and a Cartoonist explain the quantum physics of solar panels.

One comment they made at 30:45 is not exactly correct when they mentioned that we don’t use that much power at night so it’s ok that solar only produces during the day.  Actually we use a lot of energy once we all get home from work and often times that is after the sun sets. Hence the need for energy storage like batteries to make a complete solution when utilizing energy from the sun. Enjoy!~
