What is a solar panel?
With a solar panel, the energy of the sun is collected and made usable. Sometimes solar thermal collectors are referred to as solar panels. However, the term solar panel can also refer to photovoltaic modules. In both cases, anyone who uses free and unlimited available solar energy protects the climate.
A solar panel or solar thermal collector is the most visible part of a solar thermal system. Solar panels are usually installed on the roof. They collect the sun's rays and convert them into usable heat. The carrier medium with which the heat is transported from the solar panel to the solar storage tank heats up. Homeowners can choose between different types.
