How do solar panels work?
A solar photovoltaic (PV) system works by using solar panels that contain photovoltaic cells, which when daylight hits creates an electric field. The brighter the sunlight that shines onto the solar panels, the greater amount of electricity produced. This direct-current (DC) electricity flows to an inverter which converts it into alternating-current (AC) electricity ready for use.
Solar panels are able to generate electricity during daylight hours. This solar power will feed to a properties’ appliances and lighting. For any extra electricity above what a solar PV system produces, this is taken from the grid and the end-user is charged as normal by their energy supplier. Any power generated that isn’t used will be exported back to the grid.
Is your roof suitable for a solar PV system?
There are many factors that can determine whether a solar panel installation will be suitable for your business. These include location, orientation, shade factor, the pitch of your roof(s) and your businesses energy usage.
By carrying out a feasibility survey at your premises we can first confirm whether your roof is viable for a solar panel installation. The feasibility survey assesses the size, type and construction of your roof and aesthetics of the building. We will also analyse your energy usage to provide a realistic energy and CO2 savings. Our in house technical and design team will then identify and design a solar PV solution that will help you achieve your energy saving and financial goals.
