Solar PV FAQs
Do solar panels need direct sunlight?
No, solar panels do not require direct sunlight! Of course, panels will generate more energy when situated in direct sunlight, with peak irradiance of around 1000W per m2. However, during daylight hours there is always some level of irradiance to capitalise on.
What are bifacial solar panels?
Bifacial panels capture irradiance (light) on both sides of the solar panel. This can be a huge advantage in efficiency and overall energy savings. There are certain conditions which make bifacial panels well suited to their environment. Bifacial panels absorb irradiance on both sides of the solar panel, therefore one side captures irradiance more directly, whereas the reverse side captures reflected light from nearby surfaces. It’s therefore best to situate these panels where there are highly reflective surfaces nearby.
How do stop pigeons nesting under solar panels?
There are a few solutions on the market for pest protection. We recommend a black mesh which is discrete and very effective at keeping birds and rodents from nesting under your panels.
Do solar panels work in winter?
Yes, solar panels work in winter. Although solar irradiance is much lower in the winter and the days are shorter, this does affect solar energy production.
If I move home can I take solar panels and batteries with me or do they need to stay with the property?
Yes, solar panels and batteries can certainly be taken with you when you move. Clearly there are practical considerations to this and a better solution may be to price the cost of the system into the property sale price.
