How do solar PV panels work?

Solar photovoltaic panels convert sunlight into clean electricity through semiconductors, which release electrons when exposed to sunlight. The electrons create an electric current, which is used to power your home.

The power your solar panels produce is free to use, and any excess electricity can be sold back to the national grid or sent to a battery for future use.

Installing solar panels on your property lets you generate your own electricity and power your home.

We might be unable to reverse climate change, but solar PV systems help reduce your carbon footprint while also helping you save money on your energy bills.

How do solar PV panels work?

Benefits of solar power

Solar power offers numerous benefits and requires very little maintenance.

Save money

Solar power can significantly reduce your electricity bills, saving money on energy costs in the long run.

Environmentally friendly

Solar energy is a clean and renewable energy source that doesn’t harm the environment.

Energy independence

Solar power lets you generate electricity yourself, reducing dependence on external energy sources.

How are solar panels installed?

Solar panels are typically installed on your rooftop using scaffolding and connected to your home’s electrical system.

For maximum sunlight absorption, it’s recommended to position solar panels on the roof facing south at a 35-degree angle. However, we undertake a site assessment to determine the best location for your solar panels.

We use state-of-the-art equipment that will last for decades, making it a smart and sustainable investment that will save you money on electricity costs and even add value to your home.

How long does it take to fit solar panels?

Solar panels are quick to install, require little maintenance and start generating energy immediately.

Most solar installations can be completed within a few days, depending on the size of your solar PV system.

What is the return on investment for solar panels?

Rising energy costs have led many households to invest in solar panels because it can lead to substantial savings on electricity bills.

While the initial installation cost may seem like a large upfront commitment, the long-term cost savings and environmental benefits make it worth it in the long run.

You can make massive savings on your electricity bills during sunny months, which reduces your reliance on traditional energy sources. This allows you to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

According to the Energy Saving Trust, a typical household with a 3.5 kilowatt-peak system can save between £155 and £400 per year on their bills.

Can I make money from solar panels?

Solar panels can also earn you money. The smart export guarantee (SEG) scheme lets households in the UK get paid for the solar energy they send to the national energy grid.

So if you generate more electricity than you use, this surplus energy can be sold to the grid.

What grants are available for homeowners in Scotland?

In Scotland, you can apply for a grant and an optional interest-free loan funded by the Scottish government via the Energy Saving Trust to help with solar panel installation costs.

It’s called the Home Energy Scotland Grant and Loan. If you would like more information, please get in touch with us.

Solar systems with battery storage

If you want to lower your energy bills even further, adding battery storage to your solar PV system lets you store unused solar power in batteries until you need it.

Solar batteries can supply energy to your home during peak times, reducing electricity bills. Alternatively, this excess energy can be sold to the grid instead.

Battery systems also work as an electricity backup, so you always have an electricity supply even when there’s a power cut.

Solar panel maintenance

Our maintenance services ensure that your solar panels operate at full capacity.

Our yearly check-up service includes a thorough inspection to ensure your solar panels are clean and functioning correctly, with no malfunctions.

Additionally, we can deter birds and pests by installing mesh or netting on the panels.

Can solar panels charge an electric car?

With new petrol and diesel car sales to end in Scotland by 2035, home electric car chargers are gaining popularity due to their convenience.

The good news is you can use solar power to charge an electric car, although you’ll need a larger solar PV system.

Having an EV car charger at your home can make it a breeze to keep your car charged. If your solar panels produce enough energy, you can charge your electric vehicle for free.

In addition to installing solar PV panels, we specialise in installing electric vehicle charging points for homes and businesses.

Do solar panels work in winter in Scotland?

Can I install solar panels on a listed building?
