What Is A Solar Power Plant?

A solar power plant is the plant where the facility harnesses sunlight either directly, using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly, like Solar Thermal plants, or using concentrated solar power or a combination of those and converts the harnessed energy into electricity. Where Photovoltaic cells convert light into an electric current using the photovoltaic effect into electricity and the Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and solar tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam for heating water and converting it to steam which is then used to spin a turbine connected to a generator which produces electricity.
