Solar PV Panels

Generate cheap, green electricity from sunlight

Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic cells. These cells don't need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.

When sunlight hits a solar panel, it is absorbed by the photovoltaic cells and is converted into direct current (DC) electricity. The DC electricity is then sent to an inverter, which converts it into alternating current (AC) electricity. This AC electricity can be used to power your home or business, or it can be sent back to the grid if you are connected to one.

Solor Panels Benefits

  • Cut your electricity bills: sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation your electricity costs will be reduced.
  • Cut your carbon footprint: solar electricity is green, renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants. A typical home solar PV system could save over a tonne of carbon dioxide per year – that's more than 30 tonnes over its lifetime.
  • Solar panels have low maintenance costs
  • Solar energy can generate electricity in any climate
  • Solar power can get you money back through Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs)


Photons in sunlight knock electrons loose from the atoms in the photovoltaic cells, generating a flow of electricity. The photovoltaic cells are made up of layers of semiconductor materials, usually silicon. When sunlight hits the cell, it creates an electric field across the layers.

The electric field causes the electrons to flow, creating a current. Metal conductive plates on the top and bottom of the cell collect the current and direct it through wires to the inverter.

The inverter converts the DC electricity produced by the solar panel into AC electricity, which is the type of electricity used in homes and businesses.

The AC electricity is then sent to a breaker panel, where it is distributed to the electrical devices in your home or business. Any excess electricity can be sent back to the grid if you are connected to one.

Overall, solar panels use the energy from the sun to produce electricity, which can be used to power your home or business and reduce your reliance on fossil fuels.

A solar inverter, also known as a photovoltaic (PV) inverter, converts the direct current (DC) electricity produced by solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is the type of electricity that is used in most homes and businesses.

Here is how it works :

  • The solar panels on the roof of a home or building capture sunlight and convert it into DC electricity.
  • The DC electricity is then sent to the solar inverter, which is typically mounted on a suitable wall or in a loft space, maybe in a utility room.
  • The inverter converts the DC electricity into AC electricity, which is compatible with the electrical grid and can be used to power appliances and devices in the home or building.
  • The AC electricity is then sent to the main electrical panel, also known as the breaker box or fuse box, where it can be distributed to different circuits and outlets throughout the home or building. Some solar inverters are designed to work with a single solar panel or a small array of panels, while others are designed to work with larger solar systems that have many panels. There are several different types of solar inverters available, including string inverters, micro inverters, and central inverters. Each type has its own unique features and benefits, and the best choice for a particular installation will depend on the specific needs and requirements of the system.

Solar PV Panel Installation

At first, we will have to call you and book an appointment for a free, non-binding assessment of your property. The phone call will take only a few minutes of your time, during which we will explain the solar PV installation process and answer any questions that you might have.

The assessment itself will take about an hour of your time, during which the assessor will ensure the property is suitable for having solar panels installed. This will involve measuring your roof etc. Our assessor will also go through your utility bills with you, calculating how much money solar panels would generate for your household in both savings and any available tariffs. We will then with your permission log onto the online portal and establish if panels can pay for themselves and benefit you.

Commercial and Domestic Solar Panels

Solar panels have many benefits and are savings can be made on both domestic households and commercial properties. Solar PV panels can help both domestic households and commercial properties reduced their carbon footprint by reducing their reliance on fossil fuels, therefore, saving hundreds on electric bills every year.

As many commercial properties are utilised during the day, they are perfect for solar panels. The energy produced by the solar panels immediately reduce your reliance on electricity from the grid.

Some of the key benefits of commercial solar panels include:

  • Reduced electric bills
  • Tax relief
  • Additional income potential


Solar PV needs little maintenance – you'll just need to keep the panels relatively clean and make sure trees don't begin to overshadow them. In the UK panels that are tilted at 15° or more have the additional benefit of being cleaned by rainfall to ensure optimal performance. Debris is more likely to accumulate if you have ground-mounted panels. If dust, debris, snow or bird droppings are a problem they should be removed with warm water and a brush or a high-pressure hose.

Solar Power with Battery Storage

Coupled with a battery, Solar PV panels can store the excess energy produced into a battery so you can use it another time. The excess energy stored in the battery can be used when you have higher demands for electric energy or when your solar PV system is not providing enough electric energy to power your household.

There are many types and sizes of energy-stored systems available, including brands such as lux, Growatt,Powerwall Typically, energy-storage systems work best when they are storing the energy from the Solar PV panels during the day for use in the evenings or at night when you’d otherwise be paying for peak hours. Energy-storage systems can be retrospectively fitted to your existing solar PV system.

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need?

There is no requirement on the number of solar panels you need to install in your home, however typically the more solar panels you install the more electricity you can generate and the more you will be able to save on your electric bills. Coupled with solar battery storage, you could save further money on your electric bills by storing excess energy for use whenever required.

The most common solar PV system size in the UK is a 3kW system comprising of 10 panels or a 5kW system compromising of 14 panels
