If you live in Scotland, you may have noticed the sudden flurry of solar panels on residents’ rooftops over the past decade. With the increasing importance of sustainable living, interest in this green energy source has soared.
Solar Panel technology has certainly come a long way since the 1970’s. Currently, there are two dominant technologies used for solar panels:
Photovoltaic (Solar PV) – converts solar energy into electricity and uses it to power household electrical products/lighting.
Solar Thermal – heats water that helps significantly to reduce heating bills.
