Why solar PV? Why now?

The cost of heating and powering your home is on the rise. Climate change is a very real issue that is affecting our planet right now.

By investing in solar PV panels, you are reducing your reliance on energy provided by the National Grid. How? By harnessing the energy from the sun’s rays and converting it into electricity that can be used to power your home. It is even possible to store that energy using solar batteries so that you can use it later on (for instance, during evenings and the night-time when the sun is no longer shining).

How do solar PV panels work?

Solar PV panels consist of a number of silicon cells that generate a flow of electricity in response to sunlight shining on the panels.

The electricity generated is direct current (DC). Our household appliances, however, use alternating current (AC); so, an inverter is also installed to convert the DC electricity into AC. This is then directed to your home in order to power your appliances, devices and systems.

Solar PV works better, the sunnier it is. However, modern panels work perfectly well even when it’s cloudy!

Solar PV panels:
