Residential Solar PV

How do solar systems work?

solar pv battery storage

A photovoltaic (PV) solar system is comprised of solar panels, racks for placing the panels on your roof, electrical wiring, and an inverter.

From sunrise to sunset, the solar panels generate electricity (DC) which is sent to an inverter.

The inverter converts the DC electricity into alternating current (AC), which is the type of electricity required for household use.

The AC power is delivered directly to your home’s main electrical service panel for use by you and your family.

How much will I save with a solar energy system?

A PV system reduces the amount of electricity you need to buy from the national grid. This affordable and reliable technology future-proofs you against rising energy costs.

By generating your own electricity with a PVGen Solar system, you can expect to save up to 50% on your electricity bills.

An additional storage option in comparison to battery technology is to add a Power Diverter to heat your cylinder with excess self-generated electricity, maximising the energy that comes from your system.

An average size system (3kWp) will generate 3,000 kWp per annum. This can save up to €600 per year based on a 20cent Per kWh Tarrif which is the average price we pay for our units of energy.

Are PV Generation preferred solar panels better?

Not all solar systems are created equal. Of all solar panels on the market, our recommended panels convert more sunlight into electricity.

This means our solar panels generate more power than conventional panels1 within the same amount of space and you’ll need fewer solar panels to produce the energy you need.

You can maximise your available roof space to choose the best, unobstructed location for electricity production.

You will save more money on electricity costs over time with PV Generation.
