Solar panels are also known as solar photovoltaic or solar pv. They convert sunlight into electricity, which can then be used to power your home or business. If there is any electricity that isn’t used it is automatically sent back to the grid. Electricity generated by solar panels can be stored in batteries or in hot water cylinders.
At Applegarth we specialise in both the design and installation of solar panels in Wrexham, North Wales. We have been installing roof mounted solar panels and ground mounted solar panels for businesses and homeowners for over 15 years. We are fully accredited under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme to install solar panels in North Wales.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Solar panels are constructed from lots of solar cells. These solar cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon. The solar panel creates electricity when photons from the sunlight react with electrons in the semi-conducting material. The stronger the sunlight the more electricity is produced.
The Benefits Of Installing Solar Panels
There are many benefits of installing solar panels:
- Reduce your carbon footprint – Solar energy is green renewable energy that doesn’t give off any carbon dioxide.
- Low maintenance – Solar panels require very little maintenance. Once they are installed you just need to make sure they are clean, so that they work to their full potential.
- Reduced bills – Solar panels help to reduce your energy bills as you require less electricity from the national grid.
- Work all year round – Solar panels work all year round. The only need sunlight and not heat, meaning they even work on overcast days.
