Solar

How Solar Works?

Once your new system is installed, the PV cells on the solar panels will begin to work their magic. They absorb the sun’s natural light and turn it into a usable form of DC energy (Direct Current). This is directed to the inverter where it is converted into AC (Alternating Current). At this stage the clean energy generated by the panels can be used around the home or sent to a battery where it is stored until you need it.

If you are generating more power than you need, you can sell your excess energy back to the grid. Simply set up an SEG (Smart Export Guarantee) rate with your supplier and you will get paid a set amount per kWh exported. We recommend signing up with Octopus energy as they pay the highest rate at 15p per kWh, are one of the most ethical suppliers and have amazing customer service.

When comparing Solar panels, there’s a lot of important numbers to take into consideration but the most important number will perhaps be the product warranty length. The second thing is the performance warranty. This is important as the panels will degrade over time and this number tells you what percentage on generation they will be running in 25-30 years time. With inverters, companies tend to have a base warranty length which can be extended for a fee. 

We have great knowledge of the equipment we offer so whatever your budget and needs we will advise professionally and honestly.
