Solar Power (PV)
Solar Energy Systems
There are two types of solar energy.
Solar thermal produces hot water and solar photovoltaic (known as PV) produces DC electricity.
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) cells use energy directly from the sun to generate electricity. There are no emissions of CO2 with a PV system and no moving parts. Electrical power generated by PV can be used on-site to meet existing demand and surplus power can be exported to the grid.
PV systems work best in direct sunlight but also generate electricity when conditions are less favourable. However, electrical output is dependent on the amount of sunlight that falls on the surface of the unit and for this reason un-shaded, south-facing surfaces produce the best results.
Our PV systems provide electricity which can be used to power electrical appliances in your home, office or factory.
