Technology

Solar Panels

Windhub A Solar Park consists of more than 55,000 photovoltaic solar panels. 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.
