A house fitted with both thermal and photovoltaic panels

A solar energy conversion system (SECS),[1][2][3] or solar energy harvester are general terms that could be used for any machine that, powered by solar energy, either generates energy that can be used to directly heat a fluid or gas (passive solar) or generate electricity (PV, CPV, PETE, ...). The term can thus refer to:

Operation

The conversion of the energy of the power of the sun into more useful forms is done using a variety of ways, each depending on the type of system employed. See photovoltaics.
