Solar Panels & Battery Storage Systems

Solar panels are a renewable way to generate pollution-free energy directly from the sun. Solar panels create electricity using photovoltaic (PV) panel systems which transform the energy from sunlight into useable and storable green electricity. A battery storage system lets you store this electricity so you can use it when the sun goes down.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar panels work through the use of photovoltaic cells within the panels mounted on your roof.

What are photovoltaic cells and how do they work?

Photovoltaic cells in your solar panels collect energy radiated from the sun. When the sun’s rays hit the photovoltaic system, it creates a flow of electricity. This is captured and converted into direct current (DC) electricity. An inverter is then used to convert this DC electricity into alternating current (AC), which your appliances at home are powered by.

What is a solar panel battery storage system?

A solar panel battery storage system is used to store the electricity generated from your solar PV panels. This energy can then be used when the sun goes down or during cloudy days. Battery storage systems are optional, but can double the amount of green electricity your home uses over the average year. This means your electricity bills and the amount of electricity you buy from the electricity grid drastically reduces all year round.

Are solar panels green?

Solar panel systems, which convert energy from the sun into electricity, do not produce any pollution or emissions in the conversion process, which is why it’s the most popular way for homes to become more energy efficient. There are already over 150,000 homes with solar panels in the UK.

Who make the best solar panel systems?

We always remain technology independent with the solar panels we recommend to different homeowners. Our favourite technology providers, based on the efficiency of the system, warranties and value, are SunPower, SolarEdge, sonnenBatterie, LG and Tesla.
