What Are Solar Panels
Solar panel electricity systems, also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells. These cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.
How Do Solar Panels (PV) Work
PV cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric eld across the layers. The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced. Groups of cells are mounted together in panels or modules that can either be mounted on your roof or on the ground.The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp). That’s the rate at which it generates energy at peak performance in full direct sunlight during the summer. PV cells come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Most PV systems are made up of panels that t on top of an existing roof, but you can also t solar tiles
The Myths About Solar
There are countless misconceptions when it comes to solar energy, but the most widespread is that solar panels need sunlight to generate power. This simply is not true! Modern solar panels are perfectly capable of generating power even in cloudy conditions. That’s because PV solar panels only need UV light, rather than sunshine, to work at full capacity.

The Photocolatic Effect
PV solar panels are made from cells composed of layers of silicon, phosphorous and boron. When these cells are struck by sunlight, the panels’ design allows them to absorb the photons present. These photons cause the electrons in the solar cells to react and break free from their atomic orbits, creating an electrical charge.With phosphorous electrons generating a negative charge and boron electrons a positive charge, the combined eect is the creation of directional current, or DC electricity.
How This Benefits You
The DC charge created by your PV solar panels must then be converted into an AC (Alternating Current) supply in order to be compatible with domestic appliances. This is done with inverters, which use electromagnetic switches to repeatedly ‘ip’ the DC charge backwards and forwards, producing an AC current. It is then safe for use in domestic power sockets, allowing you to plug in all your appliances as normal.At Nottingham Energy Centre, we oer a broad range of solar panels for your roof. Our fully qualied and highly experienced team will happily install anything from a single panel to a full PV array.
