Our range of solar panels use the latest
in cutting edge technology allowing you to capture the sun’s
energy and convert this solar power it into electrical current
to power a range of appliances. Our panels use crystalline
silicon technology which is more efficient than amorphous
or thin film solutions, particularly in lower light conditions
found in the UK. All our solar panels are accredited with
the internationally recognised IEC 61215 certification.
Our solar panels extend from 5 through to 150 watts in power.
Choosing the correct size of panel will depend on variables
such as the power required by the appliances you require
to power, length of use and hourly sunshine rates. All panels
over 18 watts will require a voltage regulator. Please refer
to our accessory table to ensure you have the correct equiptment
to operate your chosen solar panel.
Energy is a tried and tested power source that is
already being used around the world for numerous commercial,
industrial, government and domestic applications. It is
powering water pumps in African villages, weather stations
in the Antarctic and satellites in space! It works by
transforming the energy from the sun into a reusable form
of electricity, a process known as Photovoltaic (or PV
for short). Your Solar panel acts as a collecting tray,
helping you catch the sun’s rays. The bigger the panel,
the more energy you can collect. The energy collected
is stored for your future use in a battery. Sometimes
you collect more energy than you actually need so with
larger panels a voltage regulator should be fitted to
control the flow of energy and prevent battery damage.
It would be hard to find a more environmentally friendly
power supply. Clean and green, solar power is a renewable,
sustainable and non-polluting source of energy. It is
easy to see the appeal of solar power for domestic use.
Low maintenance and long lasting, it is a highly cost-effective
and reliable energy supply. All Solar panels come with
a 10 year guarantee.
Solar Panels There are several different methods
of harnessing the sun’s energy with Solar panels. Our
panels are based on the finest crystalline silicon technology,
which is more efficient than amorphous or other thin film
technologies, particularly in low light conditions. This
makes it the best choice for our cloudier climate! While
the UK does not experience extreme weather very often,
our panels are specially designed for use in harsh environmental
conditions so you will never need to worry about storm
damage. The individual solar cells are laminated onto
a multi-layer back sheet to protect against moisture ingress
and ensure UV stability and electrical insulation. The
cell base is encapsulated onto strengthened water white
low iron tempered glass and mounted into a corrosion-resistant,
heavy-duty anodised aluminium frame for stability.
Powered Lighting Kits
Solar Mate Kits can provide essential light and electrical
power to any outdoor buildings such as sheds, workshops,
summer houses, stables, agricultural buildings etc.
