Solar Cells

Cheaper Solar Cells that can help you produce your own Energy


A solar cell is a term for a device that is used specifically to capture energy from the sun's rays. A group of solar cells, which are put together in an array, is called a solar module.

An array of cells can be used to generate electricity in remote areas, where power from the "grid" is unavailable.

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to make a solar cell, or an array of solar cells, you might be interested in a dye-sensitized solar cell. This type of cell is very promising because of the cost factor. It is made of low cost materials and can be a do-it-yourself project.

It can be made into thin, flexible sheets. Even though this material isn't as efficient as some others on the market, the cost difference may make it more desirable.

A dye-sensitized solar cell is relatively new. It is based on a semi-conductor formed between a photo-sensitized anode and an electrode. The cell was invented by Michael Gratzel and Brian O'Regan in 1991. It is also known as a Gratzel cell.
