Solar Panels Cheshire - Suppliers and Installers
Solar Panel Introduction
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) technology has been around for over 50 years and is now more cost effective than ever. Contrary to popular belief, solar panels in Cheshire (or anywhere in the UK) is more than viable due to significant installation cost reductions, ever increasing energy bills and government incentive payments.
Solar Panel payback is now around 5 years and will run for a minimum of 25 years. Fully funded installations are available removing the need for Capex or Finance.
Solar Panel technology is simple with no moving parts, removing maintenance. Silicon cells are the engine of a solar panel, when a silicon cell is exposed to sunlight it releases electrons, by putting these cells in series a current is generated. A Panel is simply circa 70 silicon cells wired in series.
A Solar Photovoltaic Panel, however, produces Direct Current (DC) which is not suitable for commercial use (very expensive to transport). Therefore every solar panel array comes with an inverter package that converts the electricity from DC to Alternating Current (AC), which can then be utilised for commercial or domestic use.
