SOLAR PANELS

Generate cheap, Green electricity

Solar electricity panels, also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity that you can use in your home. Solar PV panels are made from photovoltaic cells, grouped together in modules. Since solar energy is a renewable resource, by installing solar panels you can generate your own renewable electricity.
WORKING OF SOLAR PANEL

How it works

Solar PV cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon.
When light shines on the material, electrons are knocked loose, creating a flow of electricity. The cells don’t need direct sunlight to work, they can work on a cloudy day. However, the stronger the sunshine, the more electricity generated.

Solar PV cells are grouped into modules, and modules usually grouped into solar arrays – modules and arrays come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Most PV systems are made up of panels that fit on top of your roof, but you can also install on the ground, or fit solar tiles.

The electricity generated is direct current (DC), whereas the electricity you use for household appliances is alternating current (AC). An inverter is installed along with the system to convert DC electricity to AC.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are solar panels right for you?

Space is a key consideration. As a general guide, a roof area of 10m2 to 20m2 would be enough to delivery between 20% and 45% of the typical household’s electricity needs.
This roof space will face north, unshaded, and at a pitch angle of about 30 or 40 degrees. East- or west-facing roofs could still be considered.
