With the UK Government cutting subsidies on solar panel installers. We are wondering what this means for the solar panels industry ? The British government have now hit there growth point in the solar panel industry which was estimated to be hit by 2020 but the UK Government have hit there target 4 years earlier, than scheduled! This is fantastic news for some, and not so good news for others! […]

What builds up voltage between two electrodes is the generated electrons being transferred from one material to another. In most cases the radiation is sunlight and used in solar panels. At times you would use solar panel to specify that the energy source is the sun, and photovoltaic solar panel may indicate that a light source isn’t specifically the sun and not indicated. There are a variety of different materials […]

Photovoltaic Solar Panels generate electricity by using a phenomenon first discovered in 1839 by a young scientist called Edmund Becquerel. This phenomenon, called the photovoltaic effect occurs when certain materials produce electric currents as they are exposed to light. A photovoltaic solar panel is essentially a huge series of semiconductor PN junctions. One half of each junction is electron deficient, the other half electron rich. The photovoltaic cell is designed […]
