It manufactures solar wafers and modules and has several segments, including wafers (manufacture and sale of monocrystalline and multicrystalline solar wafers and processing services), cells and modules (creation and sale of photovoltaic cells and modules) and solar energy projects (development and electricity). Designs, manufactures, markets and distributes solar photovoltaic energy systems (including the development, construction, operation and maintenance of solar photovoltaic energy systems) and solar modules (including the design, manufacture and sale of cadmium telluride solar modules, which convert sunlight into electricity).
Solar radiation can be directly converted into electricity by solar cells (photovoltaic cells). The amount of sunlight that reaches the Earth's surface in an hour and a half is enough to manage the entire world's energy consumption for a whole year.
It all started with Edmond Becquerel, a young physicist working in France, who in 1839 observed and discovered the photovoltaic effect, a process that produces an electrical voltage or current when exposed to light or radiant energy. In 1888, a Russian scientist named Aleksandr Stoletov built and patented the first true solar cell.
