PV (Photovoltaic) solar panels & installations
"PV solar panels, also known as photovoltaic panels operate even on cloudy days in the UK and in some cases heat up your hot water tank. This versatile technology will still be generating power for your lifestyle, three decades from now."
Photovoltaic solar panels.
Contrary to popular belief, pv solar panels work more efficiently in cooler climates like the United Kingdom and Germany.
In a nutshell.
PV solar panels produce electrons that are like cats. They'll go where ever the food is better and in a PV context, that may be battery storage, washing machine, TV or EV charging etc. Electrons will naturally gravitate to where they are needed.
Photons from the sun can penetrate clouds allowing you to generate some power even on overcast and cloudy days.
Photovoltaic arrays can be roof or ground-mounted. The panels on your roof will be South 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.
