How does SolarPV work?
The light from the sun makes packets of energy called photons, these fall onto a solar panel and can create an electric current through a process called the photovoltaic effect.
Each panel produces a relatively small amount of energy but can be linked together with adjoining panels to produce higher amounts of energy as a solar array.
The electricity produced from a solar panel (or array) is in the form of direct current (DC). Through an inverter, the DC is then converted to AC (alternating current) enabling it to be used to power electrical devices around your home.
