You’ve got a roof or a plot of land. That roof or plot of land has an empty space.
You look at your ever-increasing electricity bill and ask yourself “Why?” “How come!”
You’re running around your home switching lights off that your teenage children think are mandatory during daylight hours! Double checking that the immersion heater is NOT on! You’re looking at your smart meter more times than you look at Netflix and you’ve bookmarked “best way to reduce my home electricity bill” on your search engine!
You’ve got to thinking, “Maybe a solar panel installation would be a good idea after all?”
Am I right?
But you’ve got questions. How many do we need? Have we got enough room? Can they go on the ground? Do we need planning permission? What are they made of? What’s the best sort? How long do they last?
So many questions but you just know that it’s time to have some control over the cost of your electricity supply. You start to think about when your children will start showering three times a day because they’ve just met the love of their life! 😊
Whatever the case, you want a solar panel installation company that won’t:
- Talk over your head.
- Rush your decision-making process.
- Pressure you into buying.
- Charge you an arm and a leg (or a left foot.)
- Go MIA (missing in action) halfway through the project.
- Make you feel guilty about nit-picking their work (we’re perfectionists, too!)
- Be harder than Lord Lucan to get a hold of.
- Leave your back garden looking like the aftermath of a street party.
You just want to reduce your electricity bill permanently and reduce your carbon emissions as well (feel good factor – doing your bit) and enjoy the savings doing the things that you’ve promised yourself and your family, time and time again!
But it needs to be flawless, functional and it’s got to be affordable, cost effective and virtually maintenance free.

The Benefits of Generating Your Own Electricity.
Solar energy is the most common type of renewable energy. It is sourced from the light and heat of the sun. The light and heat are harnessed using a wide range of technologies. The technologies are used to transform the heat and light into energy.
The energy produced is applied in a wide range of applications. The most common application of solar energy is in households. In the households, solar power is used as an alternative to grid power. Unlike grid power, solar power is cost-efficient and does not cause any harm to the environment. The adoption of solar energy is a move towards sustainability.
It is worth noting that most types of technology used to harness energy from the sun keeps evolving with time. These solutions differ depending on the provider and the type of application. Below are some common solar energy harnessing technologies.
Watch How Solar Panels Are Made From Sand!
1. Solar PV
Solar PV panels are made from photovoltaic cells that are grouped in modules. The layered cells are made using semiconductors like silicon. They help to generate renewable electricity by using rays from the sun.
Why Use Solar PV Panels?
Below are some of the main benefits of solar PV panels:
- Renewability of energy
Solar energy is one of the most common types of renewable energy. It is regarded as a renewable type of energy because it is harnessed from the sun. And the sun’s energy cannot be depleted. This makes it a sustainable way of sourcing energy.
- Cost efficiency
One of the most common benefits of solar PV panels is that they are cost-efficient. This benefit can be attributed to the fact that they use solar energy as opposed to expensive electricity.
- Ease of use
Solar PV panels are easy to use and install. This is because they do not require a complex form of electrical wiring.
- Effortless maintenance
Another advantage of these panels is that they do not require a lot of maintenance. All you need to do is clean the panels around twice a year. You can also clean them once a year, depending on the location and the conditions. For instance, during the rainy season, you do not need to clean the panels because the rain does all the work.
Solar PV panels are also advantageous because they do not have any negative impact on the environment.
Types of Solar PV Panels
There are three main types of solar PV panels. They are:
- Monocrystalline solar PV panels
These are the most common types of solar PV panels. They are also the most efficient when it comes to home applications. They’re also the most expensive.
Monocrystalline solar PV panels have a longer lifespan than other kinds. This element can be attributed to the fact that this type of Solar PV panels features an efficient design that can withstand high temperatures.
- Polycrystalline solar PV panels
Homeowners commonly prefer polycrystalline solar PV panels. Compared to other types, they are the easiest to install because of their design. They are also less expensive than most varieties. Regardless of their cheap cost, the product is still very efficient.
- Thin-film solar PV panels
These types of solar PV panels are also referred to as Flexible solar panels. They offer a lot of advantages because they are portable and lightweight. Regardless of their benefits, these solar PV panels are not standard in households.
They are often used on boats, mobile homes, and vans for campers. They are an ideal option for these applications and a wide range of projects because they do not use up a lot of electricity as compared to other types. Another advantage is that they do not take up a lot of space.
2. Solar Battery Storage
Solar panels also require batteries for their performance. However, not all kinds of batteries in the market can be used for solar applications. There are specific batteries designed for solar applications. Using solar battery storage helps eliminate reliance on grid power and provide backup power for homes and other areas. They are also easier to set up, and they last for quite a long time.
Types of solar batteries
Below are some types of batteries that are ideal for solar applications;
- Lithium-ion batteries
It is almost impossible to speak of batteries without mentioning lithium-ion. They are the most popular type of batteries on the market. Their popularity can be attributed to the fact that they are highly compact, and they feature a higher capacity.
They are also quite durable, and they offer high-quality performance. However, this means that they are also more costly than their counterparts. However, their incredible performance and durability make up for their high cost.
- Lead-acid batteries
Lead-acid batteries can be broken down into flooded and sealed batteries. Flooded lead-acid batteries feature better durability than sealed ones. However, they also require more maintenance if they are to last for a long time and provide a dependable amount of power. Regardless, lead-acid batteries are an incredible option.
- DC solar batteries
DC (Direct Current) solar batteries are designed so that they do not need an inverter to hook them up to the solar panels. This means that you will only need a charge controller. The role of the charge controller is to help charge the batteries at the required current level.
- AC solar batteries
AC solar batteries are the exact opposite of DC batteries. They require an inverter to connect them to the solar panels. However, they are also an incredible option because they offer high-quality performance.
Factors to consider when choosing solar storage batteries
Below are some of the main elements you must consider when purchasing solar batteries:
- Capacity – one of the most important factors to consider is the capacity of the batteries. The capacity refers to how much energy the battery can store. The ideal capacity depends on the applications. For significant projects, you will need a battery with a larger capacity.
- Depth of Discharge – this refers to the capacity required for you to recharge the battery. When looking into this factor, you may need professional assistance.
- Price – naturally, the price of the battery differs from one type to the other. When looking at the price, also consider the cost of maintenance as well.
- Brand – it would also help if you bought from reputable brands. Also, consider a brand that provides warranties for their batteries.
3. Solar Thermal
Solar thermal panels are designed to use heat from the sun to heat water used within a household. They are designed with an evacuated tube absorber layer whose role is to collect solar radiation. The absorber moves the energy to the copper heat pipes.
In this layer, the energy is stored by glycol, which is referred to as the working fluid. Fluid boils up to 30 degrees Celcius then vaporises as it rises to the heat bulb. The heat bulb transfers the energy from solar radiation as it goes through the manifold. The vapour cools also return to the base of the heat pipe from as the process repeats itself.
The performance of solar panel heat systems depend on the following factors:
- Availability of the sun
- The level of hot water use within a household
- The capacity of the hot water cylinders
- Type of plumbing
Two main types of solar panel plates
- Flat Plate collectors
Flat plate collectors are quite similar to conventional solar panels. They feature a glazed absorber plate, which is darker than the rest of the plate. The absorber plate comes with a metal tubing whose role is to carry the water all through and around the panel.
The metal tubing is encased with an aluminium or copper covering. The role of the encasing is to keep trapped heat from escaping from the solar panels. It also features a collector system. The role of the collector system is to harness energy from the sun and convert it into heat.
- Evacuated tube collectors
These have borosilicate glass tubes set parallel to each other. The sizes of the tubes differ from one type and brand to the other. The inner tubes are made from borosilicate glass, while the outer ones are made from transparent glass. The design helps to allow light to pass through with the least amount of reflection.
