How do solar panels work?
PV solar panels work by converting sunlight into electricity. The panels are made up of photovoltaic cells, which are made of silicon and other materials.
When sunlight strikes the cells, it causes a flow of electrons, creating a direct current (DC) of electricity. This DC electricity is then sent through an inverter, which converts it into alternating current (AC) electricity.
The AC electricity can then be used to power homes and businesses, or it can be sent back to the grid for others to use.
The benefit and savings of PV solar:
Environmental benefits: Solar energy is a clean, renewable source of energy that does not produce harmful emissions or pollution.
Cost savings: Solar panels can significantly reduce or eliminate electricity bills, especially in areas with high electricity rates.
Financial incentives: Many governments offer financial incentives, such as tax credits, rebates, and grants, to encourage the use of solar energy.
Increased property value: Homes and businesses with solar panels are often valued higher than those without.
Energy independence: Solar panels allow homeowners and businesses to produce their own electricity, reducing their reliance on utility companies.
Low maintenance cost: Solar panels require minimal maintenance, and they have a lifespan of 25-30 years.

JKN Were absolutely amazing! A great local and independent company who were very accommodating. They completed the work safely and within a timely manner. They kept the environment clean and tidy. They educated us throughout the process on what they would be doing at each stage and clearly knew their electrical knowledge. Their work was safe and they followed the relevant health and safety procedures . I would highly recommend.
