Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Panels

Photo Voltaic solar panels convert the energy from the sun into electricity. The panels are made from silicone which is treated to make it photosensitive. They are exactly the same as those used on your calculator, but on a much bigger scale!


The panels are generally mounted on a south facing roof, angled at 30 degrees to make the most of the energy from the sun. An average house installation will generate between 1,000 and 3,000 kWh per year, which represents a very useful saving on bills and CO2 emissions.


In most installations, the panels are connected to a 2 way meter. This means that any electricity generated that is not used can be sold back to the grid for a tariff. It also means that electricity can be used from the grid when the demand exceeds the supply of the panels.



In remote locations, Photovoltaic Solar Panels can be used as the primary power source. This is achieved by the addition of a series of batteries which are charged by the solar panels. The current from the batteries (usually 12v) fed into an inverter which converts the 12v DC  into 240v AC, suitable for household use.
