Do solar panels work in the UK?

Suzanne

The UK receives 60% of the amount of solar energy that the equator receives. Each square metre of the UK receives between 900– 1200kWh of solar radiation each year, making the UK a good climate for solar panels to work on homes. To compare, Sweden and Denmark have healthy solar industries, and they are in more northerly latitudes than the United Kingdom.

Generating electricity from solar panels is very efficient. Over 95% of the electricity collected from your PV system is converted into AC for use in the home, and this is much more efficient than electricity bought from the National Grid. Over 70% of the energy is converted into heat with solar heating systems. In comparison, grid-supplied electricity is typically less than 40% efficient.
