PV Solar

Solar PV generates cheap, green electricity from sunlight

Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaic (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.

Here are some of the benefits of solar electricity:

PV cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material.

The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced.

Groups of cells are mounted together in panels that can either be mounted on your roof or on the ground.

The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp).

PV cells come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Most PV systems are made up of panels that fit on top of an existing roof, but you can also fit solar tiles.
