The Difference Between Solar Panels and Solar PV, Cheshire

The terms ‘solar panels’ and ‘solar PV’ are often used interchangeably when discussing renewable energy. They are, however, different terms that mean different things.

A PV (or photovoltaic) system is a complete system which has been designed to generate and convert solar power into electricity and supply it to your home (or business). The whole system is designed using various pieces of equipment, of which includes solar panels themselves.

How Are Solar PV Systems Structured?

To start with, smaller PV cells are built into your overall PV system to generate electricity (this is via the ‘photovoltaic effect’, which means certain materials react with sunlight to generate that energy). Each PV cell will only generate a limited amount of this electricity, which is why multiple PV cells are then connected to create a solar panel.

When connected together, the PV cells (now, solar panels) are able to generate much more energy, and because each cell sits within a panel, the panel protects the cells from things like poor weather.

Multiple panels are then connected together to create a larger PV system. Overall, this PV system is a holistic system, made up of multiple smaller components (including solar cells and panels) that take light and convert it directly into electricity. This is not to be confused with other types of solar technology (like solar thermal, or concentrated solar power).

Solar PV systems come in lots of different forms such as rooftop-mounted systems suitable for homes, to more integrated systems suitable for, for example, large businesses, due to the amount of energy they can produce.

At SCA Solar, we’re dedicated solar PV installation specialists in the Cheshire area. With over nine years of experience in our field, we help introduce renewable energy into homes and businesses in a safe, professional, and cost-efficient way.

Interest in Solar Energy in the UK Over The Last Five Years

2020 saw more people in the United Kingdom search the internet for solar panel installation than throughout the last five years. In fact, interest in solar panel installation peaked in the Summer of 2020 and hasn’t dropped much since.

Since the UK government published its aim of becoming carbon neutral by 2050, there has been a stronger spotlight on the need for renewable energy for businesses and homes alike. This has included the likes of Sir David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg using their influential platforms to educate people about the importance of changing our ways to increase the health and lifespan of our planet.

Although it can’t be determined what exactly caused this spike in searches for solar panel installation in 2020, the fact that the searches have remained high emphasises just how seriously the UK population is starting to get on board with the need to become as carbon neutral as possible.

Everyone wants to do their bit for the planet, and as a leading solar solutions provider, we’re partnering with all kinds of property owners throughout the UK.

Frequently Asked Questions

In Cheshire, selling a house with solar panels can be easier as they are often seen as a desirable feature. Properties with solar panels can appeal to environmentally conscious buyers who are attracted to the prospect of lower energy bills and a reduced carbon footprint.

Additionally, solar panels can increase the property’s value, making it more attractive in the competitive housing market.

However, the ease of selling may depend on whether the solar panels are owned outright or leased. Owned solar panels are generally more appealing, as they come with no additional costs to the buyer, whereas leased panels might complicate the sale process due to the transfer of lease agreements.

Solar panels have an average lifespan of 25 to 30 years. During this period, they are expected to operate efficiently, albeit with a gradual decline in performance over time. Most manufacturers offer warranties that guarantee a certain level of output, often around 80% of the original capacity, after 25 years.

Yes, the UK government has currently made the installation of solar panels VAT-exempt for households. This exemption aims to encourage the adoption of renewable energy by making it more affordable for homeowners.

The zero-rate VAT applies to both the supply and installation of solar panels, significantly reducing the overall cost and making solar energy a more attractive option for those looking to invest in sustainable home improvements.

The cost of fitting solar panels in Cheshire can vary depending on the size and type of system installed. 

On average, a typical domestic solar panel system might cost between £4,000 and £8,000. This estimate includes the cost of the panels, inverter, mounting equipment, and installation. Factors such as the complexity of the installation, the choice of solar panel brand, and any additional features like battery storage can influence the final price.
