Solar PV or Solar Thermal

Solar PV or Solar Thermal?

First, let's deal with the issue of the difference between PV panels and thermal panels.

If you didn't realise that there was a difference, don't worry; many people believe that solar panels are all the same. However, it is vital that you know which is which as they both perform very different functions.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

We touched on this briefly, but let's look more closely at the technology involved.

Photovoltaic solar panels are set up in an array, usually comprising several panels. Inside each panel are photovoltaic cells coated with a thin film of silicon, which is a semiconductor.

Light particles (photons) hit the cells and the silicon inside, causing electrons to be knocked off the surface which generates an electrical charge known as the photovoltaic effect. This is collected and channelled through to an inverter as DC electricity, where it is converted into an AC current.

After this, it goes through to a meter and a fuse box ready for use anywhere within the property.

Solar Panel System Maintenance

As there are very few moving parts, solar panels require very little maintenance. Ideally, they should be inspected every three to four years for any damage, and given a gentle wipe to remove dust and dirt. Keeping the solar cells free from dust helps them to run efficiently, meaning more solar power is absorbed and turned into electricity.

Although you can clean the solar panels yourself, it's best to check the details of any warranty, as this could be voided if you cause any damage to the solar panels during the cleaning process.

It's a good idea to keep any nearby trees pruned to stop branches and debris from dropping onto your solar panels, as this could damage them or reduce their efficiency.
