Any type of light will cause a certain amount of voltage and current when a solar panel is exposed to it. The problem is that solar panels need a great amount of light to work efficiently, and the solar light is your best choice. If you are trying to turn on a solar-cell powered calculator, a lamp close to it will give it enough energy, if you are trying to start an electric motor using power from solar panels, then you need a stronger source of light.

Hi there! Solar energy appears due to the sun's rays. It's not just about the lighting. It is also a matter of the degree of scattering of solar cells. In some regions of the world, using solar panels in clear weather will not be as effective as in others. Home solar panels showed me what this item is.

They do need sunlight to work if you want to power your house so you can plug in the light to charge the batteries, the sun first needs to power up the batteries so you can continue the cycle. But they can also work with a regular lighting.

Generally they work on any type of light. But solar panels are especially designed to collect solar lights and convert it into electricity. So they are better working when hit by sun light, especially in solar peak hours. Better the solar company panels, better the power generation.

Theoretically they can draw energy from any light source, but direct sunlight yields the best results.  That's why their called SOLAR panels.
