Working of a Solar panel
Solar cells produce direct
current, or DC, this DC current
is converted to alternating
current, or AC by using
Working of Solar Trees
• The Solar Tree panels charge batteries during
• At dusk the Solar Tree automatically turns
• The internal control can also regulate the
amount of light produced depending on how
much charge is left in the batteries.
• And moreover, the energy stored in the
batteries can be used for other purposes also.

World’s Largest Solar Tree
Produces 8.6 KW of energy.
The system will offset up to 10
tons of CO2 per year from coal-
fired power plants.
The system will generate 10,000
kWh’s per year, about ½ of the
annual electricity needs for the
