"Learn about PV solar panels or photovoltaics that exceed thirty years of operational lifetime. Modern technology with a lifespan that last longer than your mortgage."
Photovoltaic solar panels.
Quick fact - Contrary to popular belief, pv solar panels work more efficiently in cooler climates and last longer as a result.
In a nutshell.
PV solar panel (photovoltaic) installations produce electricity from daylight through a process called photovoltaic streaming. "Photo" refers to light and "voltaic" to electricity. Photons are converted to Electrons.
Photons from the sun can penetrate clouds allowing you to generate even on overcast 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.
The science bit.
Solar panels generate due to the sun's ejected photons that hit the crystalline surface and create electrons that can be stored for later use with battery storage, used immediately or fed to the National Grid.
