What is Solar P.V.?
Solar P.V. or Solar Photovoltaics are a collection of crystalline cells, which produce electrical current when exposed to direct sunlight. Commonly referred to as Solar Panels, they can be installed on rooftops, or as a free-standing, ground mounted system.
How does it work?
Panels are always installed in the optimum position to maximise electricity production from sunlight. When the sun hits the panel, the crystalline cells react and start converting sunlight to Direct Current Electrical Energy. This current is then converted via an inverter, to become Alternating Current which can be used in your home to run electrical systems and appliances.
What are the benefits?
The most obvious benefit of solar panels is that the energy they produce is free, and reduces your reliance on the grid and on energy companies. This reduces your household bills, but also has the benefit of:
