The sun provides a light source, which can be turned into electricity using photovoltaic panels.  Solar PV  panels are made using semi-conducting materials, and when light shines onto these materials, they create an electric field, which is then captured and turned into usable energy. It’s a common misconception that solar panels only work when it’s sunny. Modern panels can now capture energy even when it is cloudy.

The price of electricity keeps rising, and, with the large number of appliances we are using in our daily life, national power stations will soon start to reach a saturation point. It is highly possible we will encounter dire electricity shortages in the coming years and we will need to combine electricity supplied from the grid and electricity from other sources such as solar power station or wind turbines stations.


  • Infinite energy source : Solar energy is pretty much an infinite energy source and as long as the sun is up in the sky, we can get free and clean energy from it!
  • Reduced reliance on fossil fuels : Through solar, we can reduce our dependence on non- renewables like coal and oil.
  • A green energy solution : Solar energy does not give off harmful gases, and generating energy does not create any nasty by-products or waste.
  • Minimal maintenance : There are no moving parts in solar panels: all you really need to do is keep the panels clean for maximum efficiency.
  • Enjoy energy independence : By using Solar panels, you can reduce your dependence on the National Grid for energy.
  • Excellent savings in the long term : With the constantly rising costs of energy, solar can help you save money over time. It costs nothing for the sun to shine, so your only real cost is the initial investment!
