The UK has similar isolation levels to Germany, which is by far the largest global PV market. There are more than adequate levels of sunlight in the UK to generate substantial and reliable quantities of energy. The energy produced via PV systems will be the driving force behind the UK reaching its target of 25% of electricity from renewable sources by 2015. The generous FIT rates afforded to PV by the Government reinforce its support of the scheme, and are significantly higher than those afforded to alternative ‘green’ energy sources, such as wind turbine or hydro generated energy.
Solar panels work on the intensity of light received, but only require regular daylight to begin converting energy into power. Even on overcast days the daylight means that your Wirsol-installed system will still produce clean energy to power your home.
