How it Works

A solar PV system is an investment in your home that generates an income while being kind to the environment.

Solar panels are mounted on an aluminium frame that’s securely fixed to the roof.

The solar panels convert natural sunlight into direct current (DC). This DC then enters an inverter located in your loft. The inverter converts the DC into alternating current (AC) that is used by everyday appliances in the home.

The AC then travels to your consumer unit, normally located by your electricity meter. If appliances are in use the electricity flows straight to them. Electricity from the national grid tops it up if required. If no appliances are being used or more electricity is being generated by your solar panels than you need, the excess electricity flows to the national grid.
You’re paid for the electricity your solar PV system generates and exports.

Ideal location of solar PV

• South facing • 30% pitch • Free from shade

While the above is the optimum orientation, solar panels can be installed on a roof facing anywhere between due east or west. Solar panels facing east or west will generate approximately 80% of the electricity of a system facing due south.
