Simply put, solar, meaning Sun, energy comes from the Sun.

Solar energy is captured by plants through photosynthesis, and by humans through solar panels.

Photovoltaic cells are assembled into large panels which are then organized into "farms" of photovoltaic panels.

Photo, meaning light, and voltaic, meaning electricity, means that these panels harness energy from light. Light from the Sun strikes these panels and is transferred into energy.
