Solar Power

  • Solar panel electricity systems, also known as photovoltaics (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.
  • PV cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon.
  • When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers. The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced.
  • Groups of cells are mounted together in panels or modules that can either be mounted on your roof or on the ground.
  • The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp). That's the rate at which it generates energy at peak performance in full direct sunlight during the summer.
  • 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.
