The Benefits of Installing Solar PV Panels

 14 Apr 2022

People in Ireland are seeking now more than ever to install renewable energy for their homes and businesses

The Benefits of Installing Solar PV Panels

The Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels transform daylight directly into electricity and is a rapidly expanding market worldwide and here in Ireland especially. People in Ireland are now looking more than ever for renewable energy for their homes and businesses. . The panels produce DC voltage during daylight hours, this is converted immediately to normal ESB compatible voltage and is distributed throughout your property. Excess power can be exported back to the grid or used for space or water heating.

The sun provides us with an unlimited and reliable source of free energy. Solar PV (Photovoltaic) panels harness this free and natural energy and convert it into useful electricity. lf the PV installation is designed correctly you could get all your electricity from the panels during periods of the day.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Solar PV Modules are mounted on the best available roof space. (Special brackets can be installed for ground mounting).

The solar inverter (converts DC voltage to AC voltage) is connected to the main distribution board.

When the Solar PV Panels are producing more electricity than you are using, the surplus is fed back to the grid or sent to an immersion/heater.

At times of higher demand, the shortfall is made up by power drawn from the grid.
