How do solar cells and LEDs work?

It’s obvious to point out that generating renewable energy is hugely important, and one way of doing that is to make electricity using solar cells. Solar cells turn the energy carried by light into an electrical current, which can directly power a device, be connected into the grid, or be stored in a battery for future use. 978 more words
