SOLAR PANEL PRODUCTION BY: ANDRES GIL ELA SECTION 1 EMILY AND MADDIE MARCH 18, 2010
INTRODUCTION Solar Panels are created to absorb the natural energy from the sun. Solar Energy is renewable so it is formed naturally and can be used to create electricity. Solar energy is a better way to produce electricity because it burns no fossil fuel or does harm to the environment.
Solar Panel Creation Creating solar panels “involves cutting crystalline silicon” into tiny disks that are less than a centimeter thick. After they are cut, they are polished and they gloss any damage that was made during the slicing of the solar panels. When the polishing is done the workers install “dopants” and metal conductors and they are spread across each disk. Lastly, the conductors are aligned in a thin, “grid-like matrix on the top of the solar panels”.

Solar Panel Installation Solar panels are mostly installed on rooftops, building tops, or stand-alone facilities. If you want to get the most solar energy to your solar panels it is best if you put the direction of the solar panels facing the sun at noon. Also, if you want to get the most solar energy from the sun you have to know where the sun rises and sets every year so you get the most solar energy to your house, building, or facilities.

Conclusion In conclusion, using solar panels instead of using nuclear power plants there is a less risk of a radioactive spill or any damage to the environment. Also, using solar panels can save the environment because when nuclear power plants use all of the uranium-235, the workers are just going to bury them underground and that is very dangerous for the residents near nuclear power plants. Lastly, if many residents around the United States start using solar panels, this will be a step closer on ending global warming.
