Technology

Solar Panels

Misenheimer Solar Park is currently exploring having approximately 200,000 photovoltaic panels sited on 500 acres. Photovoltaic solar cells have no moving parts and convert sunlight directly into electricity via the photoelectric effect. This direct-current electricity is then collected, transformed into alternating-current, and finally enters the electrical grid through a substation after being converted to the proper voltage.
