Solar PV Systems
Be more self-sufficient by installing solar panels that produce clean solar energy for your home or business.
Solar panels can be used to reduce your energy bills, by using electricity generated from the sun to power your home or business. To get the most value out of your solar system, it’s best to use as much of the solar energy as you can to limit how much you send back to the grid. Or alternatively pair your solar pv system with battery storage to collect the energy that is not used immediately and store it away to be used later on. This in turn reduces your energy bills, as you require less energy from the grid.

How does Solar PV work.
A solar PV panel consists of many cells made from layers of semi-conducting material, most commonly silicon. When light shines on this material, a flow of electricity is created. The cells don’t need direct sunlight to work and can even work on cloudy days.
How Solar Batteries Work with a Solar Power System
- Sunlight hits the solar panels and the energy is converted to DC electricity.
- The electricity enters the battery and is stored as DC electricity which can be used day or night.
- The DC electricity then leaves the battery and enters an inverter to be converted into AC electricity the home can use.
