I’ve heard of some solar power systems that heat water. Is that different than solar PV?
A solar PV system produces electricity from sunlight. A “solar thermal” system uses the sun’s heat to produce warm water. Solar thermal systems tend to be more complicated to install because plumbing lines must be installed between the house water heater and the solar collector. But solar thermal systems are also popular because they utilize solar energy –the ultimate renewable energy source.

How a typical solar PV system works?
Most solar PV systems are “grid-connected,” which means that homeowners use electricity supplied from solar panels as well as electricity supplied by the Karachi Electric or WAPDA. A solar PV system is easy to retrofit because the solar electricity feeds into the home’s main service panel after passing through an inverter that turns direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). On a sunny day when home electrical demands are low, the solar electricity you generate can actually feed into the electrical grid, and the electric company will credit you for the excess power your solar power system generates.
