I apologize if this is foolish question, but I wanted to know how to connect a solar panel(that has no wires) to a breadboard. I wanted to test it out, but I am confused how to do it. Thanks for any help.

Solder a wire to each of the gold contacts. You may need to scratch off any coating over them first. Then you could connect it as normal.
