What Are Solar Panels?

Solar electricity panels, often referred to as photovoltaics (PV), function as miniature power stations located conveniently on your roof. These panels harness the sun’s energy and transform it into electricity, providing a sustainable source of power for your household needs.

By integrating solar panels onto your rooftop, you effectively become a producer of your electricity. Not only does this setup reduce your dependence on the national grid, but it also offers potential savings on your energy bills. Embracing solar energy enables you to generate clean, eco-friendly electricity, contributing to environmental preservation and the fight against climate change.

Solar Panels: How They Work

Solar PV panels act as miniature factories, converting sunlight into electricity through layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon. When sunlight hits these cells, it triggers the movement of electrons, generating electricity.

Solar Power

Effective in Various Conditions Unlike traditional power plants relying on fossil fuels, solar panels can produce electricity even on cloudy days, although the output is lower compared to sunny days. The intensity of sunlight directly affects the amount of electricity generated.

The Solar PV System

A solar PV system comprises multiple panels, typically installed on rooftops. Each panel can generate approximately 355 watts of energy under strong sunlight. A standard home system may consist of around 10 panels, collectively producing direct current (DC) electricity.

Additional costs to consider…

1. Planning Permission

Before installing solar panels, securing planning permission from your local council may be necessary.

2. Installation

The cost of installation varies based on the size and complexity of your chosen system.

3. Maintenance

Regular servicing is essential to ensure the proper functioning of your solar panels.

Converting DC to AC Electricity

To make the DC electricity produced by solar panels usable in homes and businesses, an inverter is installed within the system. This device converts DC electricity to AC electricity, which powers appliances and lights throughout your home. Surplus electricity can be exported to the grid station, allowing you to generate more than you consume.

Costs and Considerations

The cost of a residential solar panel system in the UK typically ranges from £5,000 to £11,000, depending on the number of panels needed based on your energy consumption. Most households spend between £6,000 and £8,000. If you wish to store surplus energy, investing in a solar battery, priced between £1,200 and £6,000 depending on size and capacity, is necessary.


Most domestic solar panels in the UK and worldwide exhibit an efficiency range of approximately 15-20%. This level of efficiency is effective in substantially reducing energy bills and carbon emissions for homeowners.


In the UK, solar panels operate efficiently throughout the year. During the winter they can generate enough energy to power 33-51% of a home. By incorporating a solar battery, surplus electricity can be stored for darker days.


Solar panel systems typically carry warranties lasting 25-30 years, with some manufacturers offering lifetime guarantees. These warranties ensure that panel efficiency remains above 80% of their initial output throughout their lifespan.
