What’s the difference between PV and other solar energy technologies?
PV solar systems convert solar radiation directly into electricity by means of PV cells made from semiconductor materials. Wet solar systems (water heating), use a solar collector that faces the sun and is used solely for heating water.

What happens when I produce more electricity than I need?
When your PV system produces more electricity than you need, the surplus will flow back into the national grid. Your electricity supplier will pay you extra for this surplus power, to reduce your future electricity bills.
