How solar PV works

Converting the sun’s energy into electricity

Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels convert energy from the sun into electricity. Direct sunlight is ideal, but panels also work on cloudy days.

The electricity is sent along cables to a power inverter where it’s converted from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).

It’s then ready to be used by your business, just like any other electricity you might buy from a supplier.
