Benefits of Solar Energy

Why switch to solar? Here are some of its advantages:

  1. It reduces your electricity bills by generating power for free.
  2. It improves air quality because we don’t have to use as many fossil fuels anymore.
  3. It gives you more control over where you get your electricity from.
  4. It reduces your carbon emissions.
  5. And many more!

Here at Solar Panel Installers Canterbury, we offer two services: solar PV (photovoltaic) panel installation and Solar battery storage solutions. Let’s talk about each one.

Solar PV Panel Installation


Solar PV (aka photovoltaic) panels are what generate the electricity for your home. They convert UV rays into electricity.

Solar PV panels are usually attached to the roof of your home so that they face south in order for them to get as much sun/daylight exposure as possible during the daylight hours. This is what generates the power for you and will lower your bills considerably!

This is how solar panels are made:

Now, there are 3 types of solar photovoltaic panels: polycrystalline, monocrystalline, and thin-film solar PV panels.

1. Polycrystalline Solar PV Panels

Polycrystalline solar panels have been around the longest and are typically more affordable when one needs to install a whole solar system. They also produce power at low-light conditions which is why they’re an excellent choice for those of us who want to be less dependant on the National Grid.

2. Monocrystalline Solar PV Panels

Monocrystalline solar panels are typically more expensive than polycrystalline solar panels due to the increased efficiency, but they also require greater sunlight exposure.

3. Thin-Film Solar PV Panels

The newest on the market – thin-film solar panels – are an excellent option for homeowners who want a reliable power supply without any installation costs or lengthy installations. Thin films can be installed onto rooftops, glass windows and even clothing! They’re specially designed so that you will never need to replace them again in your lifetime since there’s no moving parts involved with it. What this translates into is lower maintenance fees.

Solar Battery Storage Solutions

A solar battery storage solution is the perfect way for a homeowner to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and save money each year. The batteries provide increased backup power, which can be used in your home or business during an outage—or as supplemental charge when you’re receiving less than expected sunlight through those long winter months.

There are four types of solar batteries: lead-acid, lithium-ion, nickel-cadmium, and flow batteries.

1. Lead-acid batteries

These are the most common type and are usually found in cars. These batteries have a shorter lifespan than other types, but they’re durable enough for solar systems that won’t be used regularly.

2. Lithium-ion batteries

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are lightweight and can provide power for up to two days without sunlight if necessary—and no need to worry about spills!

3. Nickel-cadmium batteries

Nickel-cadmium is another type of battery worth considering as it’s designed for smaller applications like RV or boat use.

4. Flow batteries

Flow batteries may not be an option right now due to their higher price tag and lack of commercial availability. But they do offer some innovative features such as better efficiency over time, while also providing more operational flexibility with modularity in both design and operation modes.


People often forget that solar power is not just for the sunniest of climates. When you install a solar panel system, you’re taking advantage of all those sunny and cloudy days alike to produce clean energy—for your home or business. And with options like battery storage available too, it’s now easier than ever before!
