solar panel work

How do Solar PV Systems work?

Solar Photovoltaic systems (solar panels) use energy from the sun to create electricity used to run household appliances and lighting. When sunlight shines on a Photovoltaic (PV) panel, an electric field is created across the cell resulting in the flow of electricity.

Using a renewable energy can save you money and help reduce climate change.

 

Types of Solar PV Panel

We supply and specify a wide range of solar panels and inverters. Solar PV panels come in a variety of styles:

  • Transparent solar panels – for use in conservatories and glass
  • Coloured panels
  • All black solar panel for a discreet installation
  • Hybrid Cells – thin film and crystalline solar cells

 

At H & K Crawford Electrical Ltd we can find which solar panels are the best for you. We choose from a range of solar power products to provide the most effective and efficient solar PV panel system for all our customers.

 

Is my home right for Solar PV Panels?

Is your home in a suitable location for solar panels?

Ensure your home is not over-shadowed by trees or buildings. This can reduce the output of the system.

 

Do you need a building warrant for solar panels?

You may require a building warrant from Edinburgh Council but as certifiers of construction we can apply for the warrant and approve the installation.

 

Do you need planning permission?

Always obtain planning permission from your local government authority in case the property is a listed building or in a conservation area in Edinburgh. We can help with this.

 

Is your roof strong enough?

Solar panels and the mounting can be heavy. The roof must be strong enough to take their weight. We can arrange a structural engineer report where required.
