Climate change is a global challenge that we simply cannot afford to ignore. It is a threat to all of us, that has been created by all of us. There is still a lot we can do to minimise the effects and having solar panels installed and utilising green renewable energy is an easy step to make that also brings a whole host of rewards.
Solar PV harnesses the solar energy from the sun and turns it into usable energy for the home or business. You can use the sun to provide you with free electricity! The thing that most people don't realise is that Solar PV actually generates electricity even during cloudy weather.
Solar PV storage which is to début in 2016 will allow power to be stored from the Solar PV units so that once the sun does set, power can still be utilised before needing to use energy off of the grid. Stay tuned on here and on our Twitter channel @cdselectrical to know when we will start installing the units.
SOLAR PV KEY POINTS
- Installing Solar PV to your home or business allows you to harness the free energy of the sun; reducing your electricity bill and allowing you to earn money through the feed-in-tariff scheme.
- The best place to install Solar PV is on south facing buildings. A PV system should not be installed in the shade as this will decrease the potential capable output from the system.
- The majority of solar thermal installations are for roofs, but they can actually be installed in a number of places and surfaces such as façades, sunshades and garages. Alternatively they can be ground mounted.
