Solar Photovoltaic Panels

Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells. These cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.

 

Benefits of Solar Photovoltaic-

  • Financial support- solar photovoltaic systems are eligible for the government’s Feed-In-Tariffs which pay you for the energy you use.
  • If your system is producing more electricity than you require you can sell the surplus energy back to the grid.
  • Installing solar photovoltaic panels allows you to reduce your carbon footprint. You could save in the range of 30 tonnes of co2 over the system’s lifespan.
  • Cut your electricity bills- once the initial installation cost has been paid, your electricity costs will be reduced as sunlight is free.
How the system works-
PV cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers. The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced. Groups of cells are mounted together in panels or modules that can be mounted on your roof. The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp). That’s the rate at which it generates energy at peak performance in full direct sunlight during the summer. PV cells come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Most PV systems are made up of panels that fit on top of an existing roof, but you can also fit solar tiles.

 

Grants-

If you install a solar PV system the UK government’s Feed-In-Tariff could mean that you get money for the energy that you create. You can also get paid for any surplus electricity which is generated that you transfer to the National Grid.  For more information visit Energy Saving Trust (Feed In Tariffs).

This technology is also an eligible measure under the UK government’s Green Deal which is a financing mechanism that lets people pay for energy-efficiency improvements through savings on their energy bills. Further information on Green Deal.
