What are Solar Panels?
Solar is the world’s fastest-growing energy solution, so it’s no wonder that we’ve harnessed this in a bid to use solar panels to power our homes. Solar panels made up of photovoltaic cells to capture the sun’s energy. The best thing is these cells don’t need direct sunlight to work. Even on the most cloudy, gloomy days, they are still capable of generating electricity for your home.Get started today
How do Solar Panels work?
The photovoltaic cells in solar panels work by converting sunlight into electricity, which can be used to power your household appliances and lighting directly. Alternatively, the energy can be stored up in a battery to use later. Any excess electricity that’s been generated goes back into the grid for others to use (which you will be paid for), making it even more eco-friendly as an energy source.Get started today

Solar panels are becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason. Here are just a few of the reasons why homeowners alike are looking to switch from grid-provided energy to renewable energy:

Solar panels still aren’t as commonplace as we first expected them to be. However, more and more homeowners are turning to this new way of powering their homes, especially with the increase in gas and electricity prices. As it’s still a relatively innovative prospect for many, we get asked a lot of questions about solar panels and solar energy. Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions:
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about solar panels
You might not think that we do get enough sun here in the UK to be able to sustain solar power, but even on cloudy days, solar panels will become exposed to enough solar energy to be able to effortlessly power your home. Although we might not get a lot of sun in comparison to other countries, we actually receive the same amount of solar energy as warmer, sunnier climates.
As a typical amount, the average homeowner will have around 14 solar panels on their roof. If this is the case, you’ll have generated enough energy to power a standard electric car for over 15,000 miles every single year. Putting that into context, you’ll be able to power thousands of washes using a conventional washing machine. In short, you’ll have ample amount of energy to power your home and do everything that a grid-powered household would be able to with complete ease.
Adding a battery to your solar panels might seem a little counter-intuitive, but there’s a good reason for this. A battery backs up your solar panels so you can count on the energy that’s been generated during the day for use later in the day. In turn, you’ll rely even less so on the National Grid, thus saving you money in the long run.
If your roof has a pitch (or a slope) between 20 and 50 degrees, it will be suitable for solar panels to be installed. Roofs that are facing east, south or west will get the most sunlight and, therefore, be more efficient. A north-facing roof won’t receive as much sunlight, but it’ll still be exposed to solar energy which it can use to generate power. Although it’s important to note that north-facing solar panels won’t be as efficient, they won’t be any less effective.
No. Solar panel installation doesn’t require any planning permission from the council because it’s a permitted development. The only exception, however, would be if your home is a listed building, a world heritage site or if the installation falls outside of the conventional guidelines outlined when undergoing a permitted development.
