Commercial Solar Panel Installation

If you need an efficient and cost-effective way to harness the sun’s energy for your business, then a photovoltaic system is what you need. PV commercial solar panels will help reduce both your energy bills and carbon footprint. In addition, they will also make your business less reliant on the National Grid for supply.

So, what exactly are solar PVs and how do they compare to a thermal system? Also, why should you use Huttie as your solar PV installer? Let us look at these in more detail below.

What Are Solar PVs?

Solar PV is a technology that captures the sun’s energy and turns it directly into electricity. Each PV cell is made of semi-conductive materials that absorb photons, freeing the electrons and turning them into energy.

Each cell on a solar panel connects with others to create a module that makes a certain voltage. These modules are further linked to create an array: the larger the array, the more power is produced.

As the cost of photovoltaic systems has gone down, the demand for this type of technology has gone up. Today many residential and commercial buildings use PV panels wherever roof space allows.

Photovoltaic Systems vs Thermal Systems

Another way of using the sun’s energy is through a thermal system. A thermal system collects sunlight and turns it into heat, which it then uses for power. Thermal systems are most used in hot water systems.

Thermal is often more efficient at collecting heat than solar PV, is less complex than PV and needs less space. However, thermal systems are much less effective in winter months and have shorter lifespans.

On the other hand, PV systems can last up to 30 years, can cover around 60% of your building’s energy needs, and work all year round. So, while both systems have their benefits, PV is a durable and cost-effective option for your commercial solar panels.

Solar PV can generate electricity even on a cloudy day, making it suitable for anywhere in the UK. It also delivers substantial financial returns for businesses via the UK government’s Feed-in Tariff. The government pays you for every unit of solar electricity you generate, with annual returns of up to 15% in some cases. If you don’t end up using all of the solar electricity you generate at your business premises you then have the option of selling any excess solar energy back to the grid.

Huttie engineers will not only provide full installation of commercial solar PV systems, they are available for maintenance, support and 24-hour emergency call-outs. This highly reliable form of renewable energy is here to stay and with solar panels capable of lasting up to 25 years, it’s a great investment for any growing business.
