(PV) Photovoltaic solar panels are the most popular of all the alternative energy installations
"Learn about (PV) photovoltaic solar panels for your home or business with on-grid systems with an average lifespan of 30-40 years. An installation has never made such financial sense in a world of endless energy price hikes."
In a nutshell.
PV solar installations produce electricity from daylight through a process called photovoltaic streaming. "Photo" refers to light and "voltaic" to electricity. Photons are converted to electrons and streamed into your power supply or sold to the National Grid.
Photons from the sun can penetrate clouds allowing you to generate even on overcast days.
Photovoltaic (PV solar panels) arrays can be roof or ground mounted. The panels on your roof will be southern/ or East or West facing or close to at an angle of 30 degrees for the best performance.
The panels produce a DC current which an inverter fitted in the loft space changes the DC into AC. A wall mounted display unit will allow you to check on performance and usage of your system.
The science bit.
Solar panels generate due to the sun's ejected photons which hit the panels and create electrons.
Mono-crystalline or poly-crystalline.
Size: 1318 mm x 994 mm x 46 mm.
Weight: 6.5 kg.
1-100 KW sizing options.
Power: 180-250 Watts per panel.
Domestic & commercial on-roof or ground-mounted.
Beat the banks with a better return on your money.
Beat the energy companies who don't want you to self-generate your own electricity.
Reduce your electricity bills by up to 85% depending on your energy consumption rate and size of system.
Sell power to the National Grid at better rates than your bank, even if you use the electricity yourself.
No maintenance with a long lifespan of 30+ years. PV solar installed in the 1960s is still working today.
Contributes all year round, even in the winter months.
