What is Photovoltaic Cell or Solar PV Cell?

The photovoltaic (PV) cell was created in 1954 at the Bell Laboratories and is used extensively in the American space program. Photovoltaic cells convert sunlight into DC current. The average lifespan of a photovoltaic cell is 25 to 30 years. There are many advantages to this renewable energy source. Sunlight is virtually inexhaustible, free and environmentally ‘clean’.
