Our Solar PV Systems
Solar PV Panels are also known as solar photovoltaic panels or Solar Panels. They are devices that convert sunlight directly into electricity using the photovoltaic effect. You can find out more about how solar panels work here.
They are a key component of solar energy systems and have become an increasingly popular way of producing clean and renewable sources of electricity. So if you’re thinking about investing in a solar power system, here are some key features and considerations regarding our Solar PV Systems.
Solar PV Panel Installers
When it comes to installation of solar panels, they are typically installed on rooftops or mounted on the ground. The orientation and tilt angle of the panels can affect their performance, so it’s important to consider factors like sunlight availability and shading when determining the installation location. We’re one of the UK’s leading solar PV installers and we’ll provide you with expert advice on installing solar PV systems to your property.
The efficiency of solar panels refers to the percentage of sunlight that they can convert into electricity. Higher efficiency panels can generate more electricity from the same amount of sunlight. So it’s important to keep this in mind when choosing your solar products.
Types of Solar PV Panels
There are different types of solar PV panels available, including monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and thin-film. Monocrystalline panels are known for their high efficiency and sleek appearance, while polycrystalline panels are more affordable. Thin-film panels are less efficient but can be flexible and lightweight. Our experts can advise you on the best type of solar panels to suit your needs.
Solar PV panels generally require minimal maintenance, as they have no moving parts. However, we do recommend you clean your solar panels periodically to remove dirt and debris, and so that you can optimise your panels’ performance.
Solar PV panels are designed to be durable and can last for several decades. Most manufacturers offer warranties ranging from 20 to 25 years on their panels. At Contact Solar, we’re proud to offer extended warranties across the majority of our products. You can find out more about the warranties we offer here.
