how do you convert solar powar from the sun to electicity?
You have a few options - the easiest, and most common is to use a photovoltaic cell panel (your usual solar panel), or you can use a solar boiler to create steam which turns a turbine, and electricity is created that way. Solar boiler's aren't common though.
I have a complete solar panel system. It helps me a lot in converting the sun lights into electricity. You can also view them by visiting this site http://www.ibuysolarpanels.com
It is to use a solar panel at your home and you must place it near the roof to get maximum exposure to sunlight, but it can be quite expensive to maintain in the long-run.
