What are Solar Panels Made Of?

What are solar panels made of? How do they work? What magic lets us turn sunlight into usable electricity?

We tackle all these questions in this look at how solar energy works.

Presented by Endeavour Silver Corp. as part of the Endeavour Silver Series of educational films about all things silver.

    This video details the huge amount of fossil fuels, additional chemicals and water required to manufacture solar cells. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZgWC-Cxd44

    Go to Avasva webpage if you’d like to know how to build it. Good solutions for everyone I think

    How do you get the silver out

  6. John S on December 13, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    Silicon what is that made of..😂

    Make solar panels that are connected to lasers that shot onto other solar panels,then you got more energy,but i wouldn’t know if the solar panels would melt from laser,somebody should try that out of they won’t,meby just bullet prof glass over the solar panels or something.

    Why is there an Xylophone in the background? ? its driving me crazy.

    Where do I buy this silver you talk about?

    Commercial Solar Panels are Expensive
    If you want to power your house cheaply
    Simply Go to Google and Search for:
    *Top DIY Solar Panels Research*
    Choose the first result
    It has the plans and explanation there.

    Great video describing one of the many uses of silver in industry. Silver is a strategic element. Too bad the US has not protected the market, sending the jobs for solar panels, electronics, automobiles, and biological treatments overseas.
    The CFTC has the worst history of protecting banks that trade paper silver contracts that end up driving 100,000’s of jobs away from North America.
    Be aware that some of the new SP process use Cadmium, extremely poisonous and affects drinking water supplies.

    I hope you sell a lot of silver! 🙂

    This was a very informative video about all things solar. We just had a customer review one of the solar kits we sell. Check out our most recent videos for a link.

  16. Shantay Madison on December 13, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    I think you can see how to make it on Avasva . This is just an advice 😉

  17. Boingfish1 on December 13, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    What are and Where do ALL of the materials come from and where are the majority of cells actually produced?

  18. Shannon Gibson on December 13, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    Im using Avasva instructions to make it and I do it already 🙂

    I did it with the help of Avasva solutions.

    Gold better than silver

    hey Nicole, we don’t care

    I am a research physicist and worked with prof. Dr Karl Boer of the university of Delaware. He build the the first Solar house in the USA. In 1974 (during the oil crisis) I worked already on solar cells. My solar cells, at that time, had a higher efficiency and were cheaper than today’s solar cells, base on CdS. Who is interested in a "new technology"?

  24. joe biden on December 13, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    I found out their just made out of water,these guy never gave answers worth shit too.

    saying it out loud is easier then inside your head.

  26. tnt87 1998 on December 13, 2020 at 10:56 pm

    so far solar as with everything else is a big fat lie

  27. Johmathan .B. Swift on December 13, 2020 at 10:59 pm

    So, if the price of silver is down, then the margins of solar companies should be better.  

  28. PoeticSonic on December 13, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    So I guess if we can find another product that is as abundant or close to silicon which would be difficult we can build as many solar panels as we need, carbon would be a great option!

    What are the cell loss rates from a desert storm?

  30. Allen Smith on December 13, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    So why the irritating, stupid music?
