What is solar pv?

Solar PV (solar photovoltaics) is a renewable energy system which uses collectors (panels) to turn solar energy into electricity. It's one of the most widely adopted renewable technologies having been installed around the UK in homes, businesses and solar farms. Solar PV can contribute as much as 50% of a properties electricity requirements to save money on utility bills and reduce your carbon footprint. Solar PV systems are easy to install and will start generating electricity immediately. With virtually no ongoing maintenance required and the ability to sell unused electricity back to the grid, they are one of the smartest renewable energy investments you can make to upgrade the value of your property.


What are the benefts of solar pv?


Solar PV has many benefits which include:

  • One of the quickest and most straightfoward renewable technologies to install
  • Can be installed on both new build and retrofit properties
  • Requires very little maintenance
  • Reduces your carbon footprint by using free, clean energy from the sun
  • Generate income by selling unused electricity back to the grid via the Government Feed In Tariff or through a tariff like Outgoing Octopus from Octopus Energy


How Does Solar PV work?

Solar PV panels convert photons of light into electrical energy using a semi-conducting material. When daylight shines onto a solar cell, electrons are released generating electricity flow. The amount of electricity produced depends on the intensity of the light. The inverter will convert the DC electricity generated by the panels into AC electricity to match the main electric supplied by the grid. The electrical energy generated can be used in the home and any access can be sold back to the grid, providing you with extra income for your property.
