The science in brief: solar panels work by allowing photons, or particles of light, to knock electrons free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity. The PV panels actually comprise many, smaller units called photovoltaic cells which are made from either thin layers of silicon or other semiconducting material. These cells don’t need direct sunlight to work, they will still generate some electricity on a cloudy day, however the stronger the sunlight the more energy produced.
PV is safe, reliable, low-maintenance, and provides green energy without on-site pollution or emissions
You can choose from 3 types of solar panels:
Polycrystalline panels are accessible and cost-effective and are recognisable by their blue colour. Monocrystalline panels are black and blend into your roof effectively. They are used primarily in conservation areas and areas of outstanding natural beauty. Amorphous panels are known as thin film panels. They are lightweight, flexible and make an excellent choice for fragile roof structures. They work well at low light levels and perform even at much lower temperatures than the traditional panels.
Your PV system will also require an inverter/inverters to change the current from Direct Current (DC) to Alternating Current (AC) to enable you to use power in your business or home.
