When speaking about solar power, we mean electricity.

It is the conversion of solar energy (or light) into electricity using the photo-voltaic effect, a direct method of conversion versus concentrated solar power which is an indirect method of generating electricity. Concentrated solar power is obtained by focusing light on a small area where it is either absorbed as heat which generates steam, or it is converted using a photo-cell.
