What are solar panels & how do they work?
The process of converting light or photons directly to electricity is called photovoltaic (PV). A solar panel absorbs photons from the light that has traveled 93 million miles from the sun, and this powerful solar energy knocks electrons loose from their atoms inside the solar panel. The electrons flow through the module to produce DC electricity which is then converted to AC electricity via a PV inverter, producing free green energy for your home and reducing electricity bills. Solar panels or photovoltaic modules group together to form a solar PV array, and add a solar battery for a solar PV storage system.
Now EV is proud to be family-run and completes every solar PV installation in-house, from solar panel mounting equipment to solar panel maintenance and inverter wiring to online commissioning. Every part of every installation is completed by trusted employees who are experts in their trade. This way, we can maintain our five-star rating and avoid the downfalls of subcontracting that we see far too often.

Our recommended solar panels
The Vertex S and Vertex S+ range of solar panels from Trina Solar offer a perfect combination of affordability, outstanding visual appearance, and reliability. Offering a thirty-year performance warranty and a twenty-five-year product warranty on all black solar panels and white back sheet solar panels.
High efficiency of 20.8% and upwards and half cell technology ensures you trap the most light possible to produce the most power all year around. Their newest N-Type panel with dual glass technology competes with the very popular Jinko N-Tiger range of solar panels that we also install.
We often install other brands like Jinko, Q-Cell, JA Solar, and Longi when a solar panel from their ranges are more suitable for certain roof spaces or installation specification. But we always prefer the Trina solar panels for our solar PV installation in Aylesbury.

Five Star Google and Trustpilot review:
"Michael designed and delivered an optimised solar PV array with battery storage and solar diverter, full-house EPS, and EV charger to exacting requirements for a fair price. A large and complex installation with all the trimmings. Michael worked tenaciously with Solax to overcome some technical issues. He is a perfectionist and goes the extra mile. And the end result? It all works beautifully! An unequivocal, and full-hearted recommendation from us."

Solar Panel Bird Deterrent
Every one of our on-roof installations comes with bird deterrent, a must-have for any solar power installation but too often left out as consumers are unaware of the problems nesting birds can cause to a solar PV system. We choose between a plastic mesh made from 100% recycled plastic or black PVC coated wire mesh, both clipping to the solar panel without damage to maintain the solar panel warranty.
Why nesting birds are bad for your solar panel installation:
Damage to your solar panels
Increased bird droppings on the panels limiting performance
Limited ventilation under the solar panels
Risk of fire and reduced power output due to heat build up
