Solar Photovoltaic Cell (PV)

Solar photovoltaics (PV) cells are the primary type of solar technology employed in Atlantic Canada. PV cells are used in the solar panels that you see in fields and on roofs of homes and businesses. Do you know what a group of solar panels are called?

They're known as a solar array. Solar panels can be a cost-effective way of capturing renewable energy, but as we understand from living in Atlantic Canada, sunlight varies a lot between regions and throughout the season. For example, we get a lot of sun in the winter, but it's also when our days are the shortest, so we have to consider the availability of solar energy when it comes to using it as electricity.
