PV Solar Panels
PV Solar Panels convert the suns energy into useable energy in the form of electricity. PV stands for Photovoltaic, which in its technical form essentially means the production of electric current at the junction of two substances exposed to light. The most common types of panels are Polycrystalline and Monocrystalline. In basic terms the Monocrystalline is more efficient but usually more expensive while the Polycrystalline is slightly less efficient and consequently slightly less expensive.
PV Solar Panels can be used to keep a battery bank charged or to connect directly to the electricity grid network. There is no limit to the creative ways PV Solar Panels can be used; whether you have an off grid cabin, a remote shed, a mobile home or caravan, a boat, a work van, a truck, a business or anywhere that you need electricity then PV Solar Panels are the solution for you.

PV Solar Panels can be roof mounted or ground mounted but in either situation it is important that the panels are orientated to the south. South is the direction that the highest amount of solar radiation can be captured from; this is because the sun rises in the east, travels across the south sky and sets in the west.
PV Solar Panels come in many sizes and power ratings from 2 Watts up to 330 Watts. The panels can be connected in series or in parallel which allows for many different electrical configurations resulting in small systems of 500 Watts up to very large systems of 50 Kilowatts.
