Experts in the install of Solar PV Systems & Battery Storage Solutions
Having worked previously with renewable technologies, such as, air source heat pumps, Solar PV and Solar Thermal.
We will start with an immediate return into Solar PV with air source heat pumps to follow shortly after. With ever-growing energy costs and more of us looking to use renewable energy, Solar PV is a tried and trusted method.
Generating solar power and using it yourself gives a far bigger saving now than it used to.
What is Solar PV?
Solar PV is a system that converts sunlight into electricity. The PV cell consists of a semi conducting material, when light shines on this, it creates an electric field, causing electricity to flow.
Solar Photovoltaic: What Is It?
There is a lot to know and learn about Solar PV, have a look below for some of the most common FAQ’s and see how it can benefit you.
What is solar electricity? This is electricity generated from the sun, the Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels capture the sun’s renewable energy, turning into electricity.
How does a Solar PV system work? When the sun shines onto the solar panels, the PV panels absorb the sunlight – this creates an electrical field causing electricity to flow. The panels don’t need constant, bright sunshine to work, just daylight.
What are the benefits to the environment? Solar PV is a renewable energy source. As well as this as it doesn’t rely on coal burning, meaning it reduces carbon emissions and greenhouse gases. Solar panels can also save around 15 – 25% on your electricity bills. (source https://energysavingtrust.org.uk/advice/solar-panels/)
How long do solar panels last? Solar Photovoltaic panels are made to last more than 25 years, however their lifespan can be much longer than this.
