Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Panels – Generating Power For Your Home

Solar PV Panels are suitable for most homes and are a great investment for the future. You will benefit from lower energy bills and will also be protected against rising fuel prices. If your system is producing more electricity than you need, you can sell the surplus back to the grid. You can contact your energy company to find out what the latest Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) is.

The Benefits of Installing Solar Photovoltaic Panels

  • Reduces your bills – sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation your hot water costs will be reduced.
  • Hot water throughout the year with a solar iBoost – the system works all year round, although you’ll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
  • Reduces your carbon footprint

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar PV Panels use photovoltaic cells to capture the sun’s energy. PV cells don’t need direct sunlight to work and can still generate some electricity on cloudy days. The cells work by converting sunlight into electricity, which can be used to power your home’s appliances and lighting.

By installing solar PV you will reduce your home’s carbon footprint. As an example, a typical home solar PV system could save over a tonne of carbon dioxide per year – that’s more than 30 tonnes over its lifetime.
