What are solar panels?
Solar panels are electricity systems that capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic (PV) cells. These cells convert light into energy which can be used to run household appliances.
RollingsEV fits solar cells in panels that fit on top of an existing roof to allow you to generate your own energy.
How does this benefit you and the environment?
After the initial installation of the solar panels, your electricity costs will be reduced because sunlight is free! Producing electricity from your own solar panel set up reduces your use of electricity provided by your supplier thus reducing your electricity usage cost and saving you money.
A typical solar system could save around 1.5 tonnes of carbon per year, helping the UK become more carbon neutral.
Compared to other energy sources, the benefit of solar panels is that they have the least impact on the environment. Solar energy does not pollute water, nor neither does it produce greenhouse gases. Producing solar energy is silent, which is another clear benefit of solar panels, as many installations are set in urban areas.
