What is Solar panel?
A solar panel is a device that converts sunlight into electricity. It is composed of multiple solar cells that can generate direct current (DC) electricity, which can then be converted into alternating current (AC) electricity by an inverter. Solar panels are typically used in photovoltaic systems in homes, commercial buildings, and large-scale power plants.
Are home solar panels right for me?
Using solar energy to power your home is one of the fastest growing renewable energy solutions in the world. You could save up to £1000 a year3 on your home’s electricity bill with a 12 panel solar system and 5.2kWh battery.
You can reduce your home’s environmental impact and take control of how and when you use energy if you have solar panels on your roof.
Additionally, you can earn money back by exporting excess solar energy from your solar panel system to the grid through the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG).
Polycrystalline Solar Panel
Polycrystalline solar cells differ from amorphous and monocrystalline solar cells in that they are manufactured with different silicon materials and wafers. Due to thin-film crystalline silicon, polycrystalline solar panels for sale have varying conversion efficiency than other models. In order to order the right system, whether it includes a polycrystalline solar panel or another, you need to consider all of the options available. Consider how much direct sunlight your home receives, how much roof space you have for installing solar panels, how much electricity your appliances use, and many other factors before making your decision. With our years of experience and service, Unbound Solar can help you find the right polycrystalline solar cells.
Despite having a lower efficiency rate, polycrystalline solar panels are cheaper. If you install polycrystalline solar cells, you can reduce costs by going with a grid-tied system that still uses some power from your city or town. Alternatively, if your area receives a lot of sunlight, purchase polycrystalline solar panels for sale and remain off-grid.
Frequently asked questions about solar panels
What are the benefits of adding a battery to my solar panel system?
When you include a battery in your package, you will be able to store energy generated during the day for use at a later time, making your home more self-sufficient and saving you money.
Do I need to get planning permission for solar panels?
Solar panel installations are classified as “permitted development” and therefore do not require planning approval.
It is recommended that you obtain planning permission if your home is a listed building, a world heritage site, or if your installation does not comply with standard guidelines.
Can I install solar panels on my roof?
If you have a roof facing south, east, or west, you are a perfect candidate for solar panels. Roofs facing north won’t receive as much sunlight, so they won’t be as efficient.
Your roof pitch should be between 20o and 50o.
What is the best solar panel for me?
Solar panels can be installed both on and inside the roof. To capture as much sunlight as possible, we offer black on-roof solar panels that fit on top of your roof tiles and have black frames rather than the standard silver frames.
Your home will look modern and sleek when the in-roof panels replace the roof tiles.
