How solar panels work

Solar panels are made of special materials which generate electrical fields when they are energised by photons in sunlight. This electric field is then converted into a current, which is in turn converted into the 240 Volt Alternating Current that we use to power our homes and appliances.

One myth about solar panels is that they only work on hot summer days. As long as the sun is reasonably high in the sky, the panels work as well on a cold day as a warm day. Indeed, in extreme temperatures (both hot and cold) the panels won't work as well as they do usually.

Even on cloudy days, a solar panel system will still receive enough energy for most of its needs. For people looking to find out how to get the most out of solar panels, this makes the UK a surprisingly good place, as our temperatures are much less extreme than most other locations.

Benefits of solar panels


The Ultimate Renewable Energy

All the energy in a photo voltaic system is derived directly from the sun, making solar power the most renewable energy of all.

Fixing solar panels in place


Low Maintenance

Solar panels are relatively easy to clean and maintain. However, the better attention you pay to maintenance, the more efficient the solar panels will be.
