What is Photovoltaics (PV)?
Photovoltaics is a way of converting sunlight into electricity.
At Greenspace we can install a solar photovoltaic panel (PV) system that will not only reduce your energy bills also provide you with an index linked, tax free income for the next 20 years – what’s not to like?
Photovoltaics (PV) explained:
Photovoltaics or PV for short is the name given to the method of producing electricity by converting solar radiation using semi conductors. By using quantum physics to understand the movement of electrons, cells were able to be created which, when introduced to sunlight, generated an electrical current. A single photovoltaic (PV) panel contains multiple cells and can be combined with an inverter – which changes the electricity from DC (as found in a battery) to AC. This makes it compatible with a households electrical system allowing the electricity generated by the solar panels to power the home.
What about the weather?
Well aside from the exciting technology, substantial savings, good looks and environmental benefits, that’s the best bit; at Greenspace the solar panels we supply have been proven to work in low and diffuse conditions, which given the great British weather, we feel is something of a must. Obviously Photovoltaics work at their optimum in direct sunlight, but although it can sometimes feel like it, we are not fumbling around in the dark here in the UK; we actually do get a fair bit of sunshine too.
Save & Earn
With a solar Photovoltaic (PV) system, you will save money and earn money in a multiple of ways:
Save money by powering your home with the electricity generated by the solar panels meaning you purchase less from your energy provider. Save the environment and reduce your carbon footprint as solar photovoltaic (PV) is a clean, sustainable & renewable energy source. Earn money through the government ‘Feed in Tariff’ (FiT) whereby the government pay you for every unit of electricity your system produces – even if you use it to power your home. Earn extra money with the export tariff by selling any unused units of electricity back to the national grid. It really is a win, win, win, win situation.
Panel = Panel doesn’t it?
With every different panel offering a unique combination of efficiency, performance, warranty, aesthetics and price, how do you know which is the right panel for you?
Easy, let us, as the experts, guide you in the right direction. Based on your requirements, budget and property, we can choose the panel that will best suit all of your needs.
Particularly good looking
At Greenspace, we select our photovoltaic suppliers with a great deal of care and a lot of research. One of the many aspects we are proud of, is our ability to offer an all black panel, in addition to the regular blue & silver panels. Our solar black photovoltaic (PV) panels not only have a sleek, subtle appearance especially suited to slate roofs, they can also help get your system approved if you are one of the few that require planning regulations to install a system.
