A Solar Panel is made up of small photovoltaic (PV) cells that link together, converting the sun’s energy into usable electricity. By allowing light particles to collide with the electrons within the panel, a flow of electricity is generated which can be fed into your mains electricity, to power things like your TV and Laptop.
How do Solar Panels work?
- Solar cells within the panels act as a semi-conductor that converts daylight into electricity
- The electricity generated by the panels is DC (Direct Current). It’s then converted to AC (Alternating Current)using an inverter which is usually located in the loft
- Household appliances can be used as normal via the Consumer Unit (otherwise known as the fuse box)
You could also apply for the Feed in Tariff scheme, which allows you to earn money for every unit of electricity you generate and any surplus electricity that you export to the National Grid.
