How do Solar Panels Work?

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels work by capturing the sun’s energy and converting solar radiation into electricity. The panels consist of many cells made from a semi-conducting silicon, with each panel generating around 250-350 watts of energy. The direct current (DC) electricity produced within the panels is fed through an inverter to produce alternative current (AC) electricity at a voltage and frequency suitable for use with general household appliances.

The great thing about these solar cells is that they do not need bright sunlight to work and are effective even on a cloudy day.

Electricity produced by solar PV panels is completely noiseless, 100% emission free and cheaper than purchasing it from an energy supplier. With virtually no maintenance required and suitable for mounting almost anywhere, solar PV panels are an efficient, cost-effective source of renewable energy for your home or business.

What are Solar Battery Systems and How do they Work?

Solar panels generate the most energy throughout the day, but this is traditionally when the least amount of electricity is used in a home. By adding battery storage any surplus energy can be saved and used when you need it the most.

The inclusion of a solar battery increases your independence from the grid and is a more effective way to use renewable energy and save money.

We can offer solar battery systems as part of our packages, but we find that the majority of our customers decide that the addition of a battery is worth that additional initial investment. Don’t worry if you decide to not include a battery initially, they can be added at a later stage.

We offer various different battery storage sizes. Our experts will be able to advise you on the size of the battery and the type of panel system you need for your home.

Benefits of Solar Energy

With the use of natural gas being phased out, now is the time to start thinking about the future. Installing PV Solar for your home or business allows you to take control of your energy supply and offers the following benefits:

Independency from the National Grid

Significantly reduced electricity bills

Increased home value

Reduced carbon footprint

Zero noise pollution

Self-cleaning and low maintenance

Get paid for excess electricity generated

What are the Costs and Savings?

Costs

The amount you pay will be influenced by a range of factors including the size of the building, how much electricity you wish to produce, roof position, whether you opt for a battery storage system, and scaffolding required to access the roof. To find out exactly how much a solar PV system will cost for your property, a site survey must be carried out by a professional who can advise on the best type of solar panel for your requirements and provide you with a quote. However, one of our experts can send you a free estimate prior to us visiting your property.

Savings

With energy prices rising across the UK, sustainable solar energy is the way forward. Not only do solar PV panels provide independence from the National Grid, but the excess energy can be sold back via the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) scheme, meaning should you produce more energy than you need, you can even make a profit.

On average, a building powered with solar energy will see a return on investment within 7 to 11 years. The significant savings you could achieve on your electricity costs means investing in solar power is a no-brainer!

With virtually no maintenance required, the biggest cost when it comes to solar panels is upon initial installation. After this, the potential to save money and generate profit makes investing in renewable solar power the best choice for a sustainable future.

We chose Gas Safe to install our solar PV system with battery storage at our property and could not be more pleased with their service. Very knowledgeable and professional from start to finish. Our system is performing better than expected and with the addition of battery storage, our electricity bill has been halved. We would recommend Gas Safe to anyone!

Solar Panels FAQs

Take a look at some of our most frequently asked questions about solar PV panels.

  • Do I need a south facing roof for solar panels?

    While it’s true that solar panels work best on any south facing roof, solar PV panels installed on roofs which are East or West facing will still operate at 85% efficiency and will still generate a significant amount of electricity throughout the day.
  • Do I need constant sunshine for my solar panels to work?

    No, solar panels work in all daylight conditions, even on cloudy or rainy days.
  • How long will my solar panels last?

    Solar panel systems are built to last for more than 25 years and even after this time has passed, the system will continue to generate at least 80% of its initial output peak rate.
  • Do I need planning permission to install solar panels?

    Generally, you do not need planning permission to install solar panels on domestic properties. Exceptions to this occur only in certain situations such as if your home is a listed building or if it is part of a conservation area. Please contact your local planning office to confirm whether you require planning permission.
  • How long does it take to install solar panels?

    Most domestic solar panel installations take no more than two days, with scaffolding typically being installed a couple of days earlier.
