How solar works

Solar PV (photovoltaic) panels generate electricity from daylight. They work from light and not just direct sunlight - so they work even in UK weather. Solar cells consist of many thin layers of silicon, as the sunlight strikes, electrons within each solar cell are dislodged causing electricity to flow. The electricity generated is channeled to an inverter which converts it into AC, the electricity is then connected to your home's electrical system ready for you to use. Because you are now in effect a small power station any electricity you generate from your panels that you don't use you sell back to the grid.

  • The Sun's rays contain energy in the form of light.
  • When this light hits the solar PV cells they convert the energy into direct current (DC).
  • DC from your PV cells passes into an inverter which changes the DC into alternating current (AC) for suitable use in your home.
  • The energy that the Solar Panels generate passes through your micro generation meter and you get paid for every KWH you produce.
  • Any excess energy that you don't use is automatically sold back to the National Grid.
