How Solar Works

    Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels generate electric power for your home or office using a renewable energy source – the sun. The benefits are lower electricity bills and a potential income from feed-in tariff payments. PV Solar panels are made up of silicon cells. When exposed to direct or indirect sunlight, the cells in PV panels collect the energy and convert it into DC electricity.

    The PV solar panels are connected to an inverter, which converts the generated DC electricity into AC electricity for everyday use in homes and offices.This electricity is either consumed by the household or office, or it is fed into the grid for credit under your state’s applicable feed-in tariff.

    PV panels can be expected to last more than 25 years. PV panels are suitable for use in urban areas as they take up little space and make no noise. They also have no moving parts, meaning they are reliable and easy to maintain.

    Why Solar

    Generating your own energy means you draw less from the grid and therefore reducing your energy bill by up to 100%. 

    If you ever decide to sell then having a solar system may add value to your home. 

    If your solar panels generate more electricity than you need, it goes back into the power grid and you therefore receive a solar credit on your bill.

    Being a renewable energy source you will make a positive impact to the environment by reducing your home's greenhouse gas emissions.

    A solar panel works by allowing particles of light to knock electrons free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity. That's a technical way of saying that the panel's photovoltaic cells convert the energy in sunlight to electricity
