How Does Solar PV Work?
Solar PV (Photovoltaic) is a system which converts light into electrical energy. Sunlight shines onto a solar panel, which is then absorbed by PV cells using a semi-conductor material within the panel. This light energy then creates electrical charges which run through your home’s electrical wiring, powering your devices via this solar energy and keeping your carbon footprint low.
Solar panels for the home don’t necessarily need sunny days to work; as they take in both direct and indirect sunlight, they will function in most weather conditions. Direct sunlight is obviously best but they will still produce electricity in cloudy, dull conditions, and rainfall will assist in keeping your panels clean and free of debris.
Will Solar Panels Save You Money?
The savings you will experience from installing a Solar PV system relies on a few factors, but studies found that the average home could save £1190 every year*!
If you’re thinking about having a solar power system installed, some of the factors to consider relating to the solar panels' cost and effectiveness include:
- Your home’s average electricity consumption. Generally, the more Solar PV electricity you use, the more money you will save. If you intend to store energy for use later rather than immediate use, you may want to also consider a solar battery.
- The angle of your roof. Solar panels will function at their best when they are placed at their optimum angle for light exposure.
- The location of your house. For example, if your house is often in shadow by large trees or other buildings, etc, then your solar panels are less likely to be as effective as they would be on a house with an open view.
