Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) has emerged as one of the most rapidly growing renewable energy technologies. This abundant source of solar energy can be harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Our domestic solar panels produce electricity from daylight, this means even without direct sunlight you can still generate energy.
What’s more, this source of energy is free, clean, inexhaustible and widely available for anyone to utilise.
How do domestic solar panels work?
Solar panels for your home are able to use daylight to generate energy to be used around the house. Simply put, the solar panels convert daylight to DC electricity before an inverter converts it to AC. After this, electricity is either used in the home, stored in solar panel battery storage, or sent to the grid where it can be sold back to the energy supplier.
