Solar panel on a boat. Solar panels (photovoltaic cells) contain a semiconducting material that converts sunlight directly into electricity. Solar power is a renewable, inexhaustible source of energy that does not contribute to global warming. Solar energy is relatively cheap, as once panels are installed, they continue to produce electricity indefinitely.
