Solar Panel, What is this?

The hottest part of the fire was the stack of solar panels. I noticed the big puddle of silver liquid. Is it solder or is there this much silver.

My hand truck was leaning against the stack of panel. The fire was so hot not only did it melt the tires off, but completely melted the cast steel wheel.

I gotta say that was a very hot fire! Cast iron/steel melts at about 2100-2200 degrees F. Wow!
