Solar PV Explained
When sunlight hits the panels it generates direct current (DC) which then is passed on to an inverter to create an alternating current (AC). AC electricity is used by appliances in your home. Panels do work best in sunlight but they also still generate some energy when the sky maybe overcast using 'diffuse sunlight'.
AC electricity flows from the inverter into your fuse box. If you are using any electrical appliances in your house at the time, the electricity that your solar panels generates will go straight to them and topped up (if necessary) by additional electricity from the grid.
If you're not using the electricity then it will go out to the national grid and your energy company will pay YOU for that electricity.

Our installation was carried out without any fuss over 3 days and I haven't had to do anything, they even helped me fill in the Feed In Tariff forms. The attention to detail provided by Rob and his team was fantastic and as well as looking good, in fact even better than I had thought (which pleased Karen) we received over £600.00 as the first payment from our energy provider.

Having had a couple of other quotes, the quote from yourselves was by far the most professional and best presented we have seen. Also, the complete lack of sales pressure from Thermaglaze only added to the desire to give your company our business.
