Solar PV panels operate by using photovoltaic cells that capture solar energy from the sun and convert it into electricity. These cells are placed between semi-conducting materials, usually silicon. When the material is exposed to light, it becomes energized, generating an electric current. What’s remarkable is that solar cells can produce electricity not only from direct sunlight but also from visible light, ensuring their functionality even on cloudy days.

To make the electricity suitable for household use, it must pass through an inverter. Initially, the solar cells generate a direct current (DC), which needs to be transformed into an alternating current (AC). This conversion typically occurs within the home and is ideally positioned near the solar panels, often in the loft or garage.
