Professional Solar Installers
Volt Electrical Solar PV and Battery Storage Contractors.
Solar PV and Battery Storage is now at the forefront of people’s minds and with the price of energy ever increasing the initial investment is well worth considering
How Solar Works
Solar PV (photovoltaic) panels convert light directly to electricity.
When solar panels absorb sunlight, particles (photons) to knock electrons free from atoms inside the solar cells, generating a Direct Current (DC).
An inverter converts the Direct Current (DC) to an Alternating Current (AC) – your mains electricity.
The electricity is used in your house initially, and if not needed, is automatically stored in Batteries (if you have them) or exported to the national grid. You will also continue to buy electricity from your supplier, if you use more than your panels are generating.

Solar PV Battery Storage
Installing a solar panel battery storage allows you to store all the energy that you have produced but are currently not using. The collected energy that the battery has stored can be used for later use instead of buying it from the grid.Here are some benefits of installing a Solar PV storage battery

Benefits of solar PV
> Reduce your electricity bills: A solar PV system generates electricity which your home will consume before importing from the grid. When signed up to The Smart Export Guarantee, any excess generation not being consumed within your home will be directed back to the grid. In this case you will be paid for exporting the excess electricity depending on your tariff.
> Solar electricity is clean: electricity generated by solar is a clean energy that doesn’t release any harmful pollutants, including carbon dioxide
> Sustainable energy: The sun is a natural, unlimited source of energy and harnessing its immense power doesn’t harm the environment or drain the earth’s own natural resources
> Low maintenance: Solar PV systems are generally very reliable. They have no moving parts so require little maintenance and most solar panels have a 25-year warranty
