Solar PV(Photo-voltaic)-Electricity producing device. When the suns rays fall onto the surface of a specially designed PV surface (Silicone wafer cell) it stimulates the cells in such a manner that causes an electrical current to flow . A panel consists of many cells connected together to help produce a more usable power output. A Solar array consists of many panels connected together to produce even more power .

 

A typical home/residential system can produce in excess of 1500 watts per hour (1.5Kwh) of usable electricity without exceeding the exemption limit on planning (up to 12 sq. metres of roof space or 50% of Total Roof space, whichever is lesser.) With the recent introduction of on grid micro-generation , this allows us to use the national grid as a storage device , and re-import electricity when required. However , unfortunately there is not a feed in tarrif in place at this time. Hence it is recommended to store any excess in a battery for later usage or divert excess to your hot water cylinder or other source.

Surely solar panels are useless in Ireland?

We don't get enough light.Well, that is not true. Ireland gets more than enough sunlight to adequately power a bank of solar panels. In summer we have a long duration of light during the days, and although that dips during winter, solar panels don't need high intensity sunlight to be productive.

PHOTO-VOLTAICS

Solar PV (Photo voltaic) technology is widely available now for you to help reduce your carbon footprint , reduce you electricity reliance on the national grid and increase your BER (Building energy Rating ). The SEAI (sustainable energy authority of Ireland ) has a grant of up to 3800 available for those who qualify.

 

What happens to excess electricity ?

Any excess electricity can be exported back to the grid or stored in a battery.

 

How long do they last?

Most PV systems have a minimum life expectancy of 25 years.
