PV systems make electricity from sunlight. This electricity can be use to power electrical items in your house or sold back to the grid if there is an excess.
PV is the most commonly installed renewable in the UK. This is because:
The basic PV building block is the photovoltaic panel. A PV panel converts energy
from the sun directly into solar power. There are a range of solar panels available - Monocrystalline, Polycrystalline and Hybrid panels and with often options of silver or black back sheets and frames.
Photovoltaic PV systems can be designed to sell any surplus energy back to electricity
grid rather than store the energy. This overcomes many of the shortcomings of using
batteries; including high cost, storage, limited useful lifespan and environmentally
In some remote areas, however, there may be no connection to the grid available making the use of batteries a necessity.
