What is Solar PV and how does it work?

Solar panels that produce electricity are known as solar photovoltaic (PV) modules. These panels generate DC (Direct Current) electricity when exposed to light.

The DC power generated by your panels goes directly to your inverter/hybrid inverter where the DC power is converted into AC (Alternating Current) power. The AC power is then used to power your electrical appliances in the home.

The system may include:

  • Solar panels
  • Hybrid inverter
  • Battery storage
  • Immersion diverter
  • Wifi operation & monitoring via app
  • Electric vehicle charger

The Benefits Of Solar PV

Installing solar PV panels will help reduce your dependency on fossil fuels. As a renewable source of energy, solar PV panels will not only reduce your electricity bills, but also your carbon footprint. Energlaze is an SEAI approved installer and can help maximise any grants available. With solar PV you can:

  • Reduce your carbon footprint for a cleaner, greener future
  • Improve your Building Energy Rating (BER)
  • Use battery storage for added energy efficiency
  • Offset any potential future carbon taxes
  • Get up to 30-years performance warranty
  • Receive up to €2,100 SEAI grants available

A Day In The Life Of An Energlaze Solar System

To illustrate just how much energy can be generated by solar panels in a single day we took a closer look at a house in Wexford, fitted with a 6 kWp Solar PV system and a 20 tube Solar thermal system.

Committed To Energy Conservation

For over seven years, Energlaze has been dramatically improving the warmth and comfort of Irish homes by retrofitting new Low-E-Plus2™ heat-retaining window glass into households throughout the country.

Energlaze now offers the very latest in solar technology – so our customers can save even more money on electricity bills and reduce their carbon footprint.

To illustrate just how much energy can be generated from solar PV panels when compared to the average consumption, we have compiled some examples from customers around Ireland that have had different sized Energlaze Solar PV systems installed. Click here to view the case studies.
