How do solar panels work?

So, how do solar panels work? Simply put, solar panels convert sunlight into electrical energy using photovoltaic cells. These cells are made up of layers of silicon, a material that can generate electric current when exposed to sunlight. The energy generated by the panels can be used to power your home’s appliances and lighting, or it can be stored in batteries for later use. Most solar panel systems are connected to the grid so that any excess energy can be sold back to the utility company.

The benefits of solar panels are numerous. First, they provide a renewable source of energy that is less damaging to the environment than traditional fossil fuels. Second, they can help homeowners save money on their electricity bills in the long run. Third, they can add value to your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers. Plus, using solar energy can help reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a greener, more sustainable future.

Receiving benefits or on low income

If you’re a low-income household or receive benefits, you may be eligible for free solar panels through the ECO 4 scheme. The scheme is designed to help those who may not otherwise be able to afford solar panels to access them for free. The program is funded by Ofgem and is available to homeowners, landlords, and tenants in various areas across Scotland, including the ones mentioned above https://www.ofgem.gov.uk To see if you’re eligible for the ECO 4 scheme, take the Eco Warmth Scotland quiz https://ecowarmthscotland.co.uk/contact-eco-warmth-scotland/

If you’re not eligible for the ECO 4 scheme, there are other options available for financing solar panel installation. For example, many companies offer leases or power purchase agreements (PPAs) that allow homeowners to pay for the panels over time as they generate energy. Additionally, there are various grants and tax incentives available for renewable energy installation.
