Contact us. Ask us any question about solar panels and chargers and how you could use them at home or on the move.
Build Solar provides solar energy kits, solar panels & chargers and other solar powered products for householders, businesses, boat owners and general leisure use. As well as supplying kits that supplement the mains electricity supply in any building whether domestic or commercial we also supply Flexi PV panels which are particularly suited to water borne and land vehicles such as boats, narrow boats, caravans, and motorhomes.
In this age of economic struggles, ever increasing population and the detrimental effect of human activity on the planet. everyone is looking for long term solutions for saving money on th one hand and minimising any adverse impact on the Earth on the other. One of the most efficient combinations of technology and sustainable living is the utilisation of solar power. The sun is the most powerful form of power known to exist so why not start using some of that power for your home, vehicle or business? The introduction of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Cells have made that possible. Clean, efficient and ready to use in all kinds of ways, solar power looks set to be the chosen method for a renewable source for centuries to come.
Photovoltaics is the process of creating direct current electricity by transforming the sun's radiation. Semiconductors are used for the process and are made from many different materials such as monocrystalline and polycrystalline silicon, cadmium telluride, and several others. Although there are a few applications where PV Cells are built on the ground, in most cases they are mounted to rooftops. Let's look at the advantages and disadvantages in more detail... continued
We have entered the solar age. There are now solar powered power stations generating enough kilowatts to provide the power needs of thousands of homes each and solar panels in hundreds of formats and designs which recharge the batteries that power everything from small cars and ultralight aircaft to the mobile phones of holiday makers and the navigational devices of hill walkers and trekkers in remote areas. We are indeed learning how to harness the power of the sun. Our site provides customers with panels, kits, and spares. They are easy to install and once in position they will continue to operate at or near full capacity for many years to come. These panels will pay for themselves many times over and in all that time you will be using green, renewable energy.
Photovoltaic systems can be as small as a single unit used to power a single light or a large expanded system used to provide the electricity needs the many and varied needs in an urban area. We use electricity in so any ways in our homes that it's difficult to know where to start when considering the many domestic uses of solar power. For the individual or family it's a matter of basic essentials like lighting, heating and power to recharge and ever increasing number of household gadgets; from the white goods in the utility room and kitchen to the mobile phones, computers and TVs our homes have electrically powered items in every room making demands on the country's energy supplies. Meanwhile, those who are outdoors and away from mains power supplies are making increasing use of portable devices that are not only examples of clean technology that supplies power where needed, but which can also be lifesaving tools for those who rely on electronic equipment for navigation and communication. Think of the hillwalker with a mobile phone or GPS who finds that the batteries are all but depleted. A portable solar charge may just make the difference between a happy conclusion to the excursion or a situation that becomes dangerous... continued
