These are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon, enclosed in a glass or plastic casing.
Groups of cells are anchored together in panels or modules that can be mounted on your roof
The stronger the sunlight, the more electricity produced.
Solar PV panels take energy from sunlight rather than temperature and can still generate a substantial amount of electricity on cloudier days.
The UK tends to have a reliable number of average sunlight hours annually, meaning that our climate is perfect for the use of solar PV panels. In full sunlight, the cells’ strength is measured in kWp (kilowatt peak)
Solar PV panels take no more than a maximum of three days for installation and will usually be up and running within a few hours.
Is solar PV the energy solution for me?
You have a roof or wall that is exposed to sunlight all day (within 90 degrees of south)
Your roof has enough space and can withstand the weight of the panels
(A 3kW system will need around 24m2 of roof space)
How does a solar PV system work?
The panels convert sunlight into DC electricity
This is then passed through an Inverter so it is AC electricity
The AC electricity then travels through a meter to record the amount of Kilowatts it has produced
Then it travels into the existing AC Installation, where it can be used if needed or exported back to the national grid.
Quality panels, components and an inverter guarantee a reliable system
Leverage the industry's longest-standing experience
Long-term partnerships are built on trust, strength, and reliability. When Sharp’s competitors started entering the market in the late 1990s, Sharp already had about 40 years of experience with a wide range of solar panel applications
