What are solar photovoltaic panels?

Solar photovoltaic panels are a highly efficient way of generating electricity using solar power. Using photovoltaic technology, the solar PV system transforms renewable energy from the sun’s rays into electricity that can be used straight away. Any excess can be kept in battery storage for later use when the sun is less powerful or absent, such as during the night. It offers an energy-efficient method to power your home while reducing your energy bills and carbon footprint.

The system comprises a series of PV cells within flat panels. These are fixed to the roof to capture solar energy directly from the sun. An electric field flowing across the solar PV panels converts the energy into direct current electricity. An inverter then converts the DC electricity to a usable alternating current (AC), passing along the system to power, light and heat the property. Excess electricity is stored in a solar power battery or sold back to the National Grid. Smart meters can be installed to show you how much electricity you are generating, using and storing at any one time.

How do photovoltaic panels use solar trackers?

A valuable addition to solar PV systems that can be fixed to any solar panel is a solar tracker. This changes its orientation throughout the day to track the sun’s path and work out the best angles for the panels to maximise the capturing of solar energy. Solar trackers work by helping to minimise the angle of incidence between a sun ray and the panels, increasing the amount of energy that can be harnessed. The panels must be correctly angled to achieve the most effective results, so a solar tracker is essential for this process to work correctly.

There are several different types of solar trackers, including single-axis trackers that move backwards and forwards in a single direction. Dual-axis trackers can move in two directions and always face the sun. These offer the best results as they can move vertically and horizontally to track the sun’s rays. Some solar trackers can increase the amount of electricity produced by up to 40%. Disadvantages include an increased likelihood of the tracker requiring ongoing maintenance over just having a fixed solar PV panel system on its own.

How are solar photovoltaic panels fitted?

Installing solar panels comprising PV cells is a relatively straightforward task. However, it is always advisable to engage an expert installer to do this for you. They can advise on the type of solar panels that would suit your property best, as well as the optimum size, location and likely electricity generation rates that can be achieved. A professional fitter can also handle issues such as roof inclines, tricky access, and south-facing surfaces more easily. You may need planning permission before installing a solar PV panel system. Again, this aspect of the work can be supported or even entirely handled by a professional UK solar energy panel installer on your behalf.

What are the differences between solar photovoltaic panels and solar thermal panels?

Solar thermal panels provide an energy-efficient method of hot water generation, offering energy bill savings of up to 70% for hot water provision. Like PV panels, solar thermal panels also harness energy from the sun. However, the system then diverts the energy into heating water via a series of collectors, hot water transfer, and cylinder storage. The main difference between this system and photovoltaic solar power is that the former only supplies a property with the means to heat water.

Electricity produced by PV panels can power, heat and light a property and heat water via an immersion heater system. A solar thermal panel system is more limited in renewable energy to a domestic home or commercial premises. Its capabilities are capped at providing hot water. This can, however, make it a cheaper option to install than PV systems and easier to add to an existing solar or renewable energy system.

Solar PV panels also provide the means to store excess electricity by installing a solar battery allowing renewable energy to supply electricity, even during overcast days or nights. Solar thermal panels may need to be backed up by a boiler or mains powered heating method when the sun’s power is reduced or absent. Both systems offer a way to live more sustainably, reduce reliance on fossil fuels and reduce energy bills over the longer term. Once installed, they are relatively low maintenance and can last for around 20 years with regular servicing and careful use. They are quiet to run and will not produce pollution or nuisance to surrounding properties.

Welcome to UPS Solar, we install solar panels and battery storage solutions nationwide, with teams situated around the country, we are never too far away and can offer a local personal service.

Refreshing we do not employ any sales reps or “Surveyors” we do as much as possible remotely, we will find your property online and can measure the roof from our office, from there we will provide
a detailed proposal which will detail all about the solar panels we use, the inverter, how many panels we can install and of course the potential returns and savings with a firm installation price.

If you are happy in principle with the system we offer and the price, we will then arrange for one of our technical surveyors to assess your roof and electrics to confirm suitability, we will also carry out an EPC if required as part of our service.

Following a successful survey, we will then arrange for one of our skilled installation teams to carry out the install, we will not ask for any payments until the installation is completed to your satisfaction!!

We will then provide you with all of the paperwork.

If you would like to speak to one of our dedicated team you can reach us on 0800 644 6887.

FAQs

Solar panels that are regularly serviced and cleaned can work up to 30% more efficiently than panels that are not routinely looked after or inspected. This makes regular servicing extremely important to ensure your panels remain safe, effective and in good working order.
Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity through photovoltaic cells. These cells generate direct current (DC), which is then converted into alternating current (AC) for use in homes and businesses.

UPS Solar can install a wide range of solar power PV panels ranging from 2KW to 6kW solar PV systems with and without battery solutions.

The amount of roof space required depends on your energy needs and the efficiency of the solar panels. On average, a 1 kW solar panel system needs about 100 square feet of roof space.

Solar panels can be installed at any time of the year. Some homeowners prefer installing during spring or summer when there is more sunlight, but installations during other seasons are common as well.

The installation timeline depends on various factors, including the size of the system and the complexity of the installation. On average, residential solar panel installations can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

Yes, solar panels can be installed during the winter months. Modern solar technology is designed to function efficiently in cold temperatures, and installation can take place as long as weather conditions permit safe work.

While solar panels are low-maintenance, periodic checks are recommended to ensure optimal performance. UPS Solar provides maintenance services to keep your solar panel system running efficiently.

Solar panels are becoming more efficient and affordable, investing in solar panels for your home makes financial and environmental sense. High electricity rates make solar panels cost-effective, and incentives like tax credits can cut upfront expenses. Solar panels boost home value and promote sustainability by reducing reliance on traditional energy.

Solar panels typically have a lifespan of 25 to 30 years. During this period, they generally maintain at least 80% of their initial power output. The longevity can be influenced by factors such as manufacturing quality, environmental conditions, and maintenance.

Solar panels can be damaged by various factors. Common causes include extreme weather conditions like hail, strong winds, or heavy snow. Environmental factors such as bird droppings, dirt, and debris can also impact performance. Physical damage during installation or maintenance is another risk. Additionally, electrical issues like overvoltage or lightning strikes can harm the panels. Regular inspections, prompt maintenance, and installing protective measures, such as anti-reflective coatings or bird deterrents, can mitigate these risks and ensure the longevity of your solar panel system.

Keeping your solar panels clean is crucial for optimal performance. Dust, dirt, bird droppings, and other debris can accumulate on the panels, reducing their efficiency. Regular cleaning helps maximise sunlight absorption and energy production. In areas with less rainfall, manual cleaning may be necessary, while in rainier regions, natural cleaning can occur.
