In summarized terms, photovoltaic cells are comprised of a semiconductor material such as silicon. Added to the silicon are the elements phosphorous and boron which create conductivity within the cell and activate the movement of electrons. The electrons move across the cell when activated by the sunlight’s energy into the electrical circuit hooked up to the solar panel.
The UK receives, on average, 60% of the solar energy that the equator receives, which works out at between 900 kWh and 1,300 kWh per Kw installed on your roof per year depending on just how sunny it is!
Solar photovoltaic panels require little or no maintenance – no need to wash or dust. It is, however, important to place panels where they will remain clear of shade and debris. Solar hot water collection arrays don’t need much attention either. It does help to periodically use a window wash brush, biodegradable soap, and water to clean the tubes.
In short, yes. Solar panels work by converting the photons in sunlight to electrons ( electricity). Photons are able to penetrate thin to medium thickness clouds, so that even on overcast days they are still able to reach your panels & generate electricity. However when there is a large amount of thick cloud in the sky, the panels will not function as a very limited amount of photons will be able to pass through.
