What is Solar PV?
Solar PV (short for solar photovoltaic) is a way of converting sunlight to electricity which can be used to power appliances, within your home and office.
The price of solar PV panels has come down dramatically over the last few years, making them a more affordable option for more people. What's more, solar PV panels will carry 0% VAT for five years starting in April 2022, which will save the householder hundreds of pounds on the initial installation costs for a typical system.
