“The service we received was absolutely first class and we were also very impressed as to how quickly the installation took place and having the system up and running. The staff involved were absolutely brilliant and very efficient and tidy. They all made sure everything was put back into place and also the electrician managed to get our Sky TV working again at the finish of the job. I am delighted and very impressed at the service we received and would have no hesitation in recommending this company to any friend or family member.”
How it Works
How Does a Solar Panel Convert Light to Electricity?
Similar to Photosynthesis, where plants use sunlight for growth, Photovoltaics work when light hits the silicon in a PV cell. A cell consists of 2 thin layers of silicon each being ‘doped’ using positive and negative elements’. These are ‘excited’ when the sun’s rays hit, resulting in a flow of electrons which produces electricity.
The electricity flows to an inverter which converts it from Direct Current (DC) to Alternating Current (AC) and carries on into your buildings electricity system. The electricity generated by your system supplies power to your building. If during the day you generate more electricity than you use, this excess will flow back to the grid.
Europe currently represents the largest Solar PV market in the world, but even here the deployment of renewable technologies has barely scratched the surface of the potential.
