27 Aug How does a Solar panel work?
A photovoltaic cell, or to give it its more commonly known name a solar panel is quite a remarkable piece of equipment. The solar panel has the potential to radically change the face of the UK energy supply and also change our homes in the process. It will soon become an increasingly common site to see solar panels located somewhere in a property and that’s why it’s a good idea to contact Solar Panel Installers Burnham based redbridgeandsons.co.uk/solar-pv-panels/solar-panel-installers-burnham. Getting your panel fitted now rather than later will ensure that you can help provide energy back to the National Grid and may even be paid for it. Before you have such things installed it’s a good idea to know how they actually work.
The idea of the solar panel was begun over 100 years ago. However it wasn’t until the 1950s that the solar panel that we know today was formulated. It’s by far the most efficient and receptive of all panels designed. Contrary to popular belief it does not need bright glaring sunshine to power it, in fact any degree of light is enough to begin the process.
Put simply, that cell begins to absorb the light and this heats up the elements inside it. These elements then charge a battery which relays the power into your home via a particular set of wiring around AC and DC as per normal installation of electrical power.
