PV Solar panels capture energy from daylight and convert it into electricity which can be used to power and heat your home or business. Our mild climate in Northern Ireland is ideal as we have good light levels for a large part of the year, so even when it's overcast, your solar panels will be producing clean electricity to help power your home or business
Solar panels are made up of a collection small solar cells which are spread over a large panel area and combined together to produce power. These cells are small discs of semiconductors similar to silicon. As light hits the semiconductor, it is converted into electricity which passes through the circuit attached to the solar cells.
The volume of power produced depends on the amount of light that makes contacts with the cell. For example, spacecraft technology functions by pointing directly at the sun because they are designed using solar panel sheets.
You can generate your own clean, green electricity from solar photovoltaic panels. As well as the financial benefits, a Solar PV installation will provide you with free electricity for more than 25 years. It will limit the impact against any future increases in electricity costs, lessen your carbon footprint, increase your green credentials and add significantly to the value of your property.
