Solar photovoltaic panels are also known as solar PV panels and are
used to help generate electricity for both domestic and commercial use here in the UK. They have grown
in popularity in the last few years and look likely to continue to do so.
Photovoltaic (PV) cells are used in solar panels to convert electricity from the daylight that is
available. This electricity is used in homes and businesses to power electrical appliances such as
cookers, TVs, lights, computers and machinery. Solar power provides a renewable source of energy and is
also beneficial to the environment by lowering carbon emissions that is a concern globally.
