Solar PV Panels Installation

Solar PV Panels Installation

Description

 

Solar PV panels, also known as solar panels, capture the sun's energy and convert it into electricity. Electricity generated by PV panels is mostly used for powering household appliances and equipment. This means that at night, when the solar panels do not work, you can use electricity from the grid.

 

Solar PV panels are a relatively newer technology compared to thermal.

 

There are few types of them

 

-    Monocrystalline

-Polycrystalline

-Thin-film solar panels.

 

They absorb sunlight and transform it into electricity by utilising a silicon based technology.

Solar PV’s benefits include:

 

•They can provide you with clean green energy for about 30 years

•Their lifespan is incredibly long

•They can cover around 60% of your household’s energy needs

•They are incredibly efficient in summer time

•They can’t freeze in winter time

•They also cover the needs of appliances with high energy consumption, such as refrigerator, dryer and so on.

Solar panel grants are available

Solar Thermal

Solar thermal power is usually used for water heating.

 

It’s a simple technology: the panels on your roof are the collectors of sunlight, thus heating up the liquid in the tubes which is then transported into your cylinder ready for use.

Let’s take a closer look at solar thermal benefits:

 

•Solar thermal is more space efficient than solar PV

•They can be up to 70% more efficient in collecting heat from sun rays than solar PV

•The technology itself is less complex than solar PV

•Perfect solution for heating up water

•They also have great value for businesses
