How Solar PV Works
Solar Panels convert the suns energy into electricity which you can use in your home or business.
When the solar pv system is generating power it automatically feeds the appliances you are using at the time, avoiding ‘importing’ electricity from the grid, reducing your electricity bill.
Savings can be maximised by using electrical appliances (such as dishwashers and washing machines), during the day to take advantage of the free solar electricity.
Solar for business makes even more sense, as consumption is highest during the day. This means a greater proportion of the energy generated can be used on site, meaning faster returns.
If the solar panels are generating more electricity than you are using, surplus is automatically ‘exported’ back to the National Grid through your existing electricity supply. Your electricity supplier will pay you for any surplus you send back to the grid.
If your solar panels are not generating enough electricity than you need, or it is dark, your home will “import” any electricity needed from the grid as normal. You won’t notice a change in the way that your house is supplied energy.
You will get paid a feed in tariff (FIT) for all the solar energy you generate, whether you use it or not, making solar panels an excellent investment.
