How Does Solar PV (SPV) Work?
Absorption of sunlight: When sunlight hits the thin layer of semiconductive material, it triggers the release of electrons from silicon atoms. The negatively charged electrons are then attracted to the positively charged side of the cell.
Conversion from DC to AC: The electricity absorbed from sunlight is DC (direct current) using an inverter. This is converted into AC (alternating current), which is the type of electricity used to power appliances within your home.
Distribution: The panels themselves are not connected directly to the appliances within your home. The electricity that is generated is sent to an electric panel which distributes the energy to the appliances in your home.
Net metering: Your electric meter then records the amount of electricity that your home is using and any excess electricity that is generated is credited to your account through a process called net metering.

How Does Solar PV (SPV) Work?
1. Sunlight Absorption: Photovoltaic panels consist of semiconductor materials, typically silicon, forming photovoltaic cells. When sunlight strikes these cells, it energises the electrons within the material.
2. Generation of Direct Current: The energised electrons initiate an electric current, facilitating the flow of direct current (DC) within the solar cells. 3. Conversion From DC to AC Current: The DC electricity produced by the photovoltaic panels is directed to a converter, transforming it into alternating current (AC). AC is the type of electricity used in homes and businesses to power devices connected to the mains.
4. Power Usage: The AC electricity is employed directly to operate electrical devices and appliances in homes or businesses. These systems may integrate energy storage solutions, such as batteries, to store surplus electricity for use during periods of reduced sunlight, such as cloudy days.
5. Net Metering (for Grid-Tied Systems): If the SPV system generates more electricity than is consumed, the excess electricity can be fed back to the grid. This surplus energy is credited to the owner’s account through net metering, allowing consumers to benefit from their solar energy production.
Frequently Asked Questions Solar PV (SPV FAQ’s)
Q1: What is solar PV? A: SPV systems are a renewable energy solution that harnesses the sun’s power by absorbing the energy within light and using that energy to power appliances within your home.
Q2: How do I know if I am using the power generated by my SPV system? A: Your inverter monitors grid voltage and makes sure that it is putting the power from your inverter into your system at a higher voltage than the grid. The best way to think of voltage is like pressure, the force behind the electricity. If the inverter produces a higher voltage when you switch an electrical appliance on it will always use the power from the panels first.
Q3: How much will I save on my energy bills? A: There are many factors that determine how effective SPV systems will function on your property, such as roof pitch and orientation. To get an accurate answer to this question. We would advise you to arrange a visit from one of our renewable energy experts who will be able to answer your questions accurately.
Q4: What happens if it’s not a sunny day? A: You simply use energy from the power grid, but it’s important to note that SPV systems can still generate electricity on cloudy days.
Q5: Who will fit my solar panels? A: We will. This is another benefit of choosing A Mellor Plumbing & Heating. We have our own team of highly qualified engineers who will carry out your work from start to finish. We also maintain solar PV systems.
Q6: How long will my installation take? A: Typically, solar PV installs take 1-2 days, but as every home is different, we can’t accurately answer this question, but once we have carried out an assessment of your property, we will be able to offer you a realistic timeframe in which to complete the work.
