Suntrader has been installing Solar Pv (photovoltaic) a decade before the popular feed-in tariff was introduced. The Brighton-based company has continuously increased their knowledge in designing and installing Solar PV systems and uses the latest software to optimize their efficiency. Suntrader is a Premium Partner of IBC Solar which is one of the leading Solar PV companies in Europe.
As an independent company we are able to offer a wide range of photovoltaic modules to find the optimum layout for a PV array. We are continuously reviewing our product range to reflect the latest prices and technical developments.
Solar PV (photovoltaic) uses energy from the sun to create electricity to run appliances and lighting. PV systems work on daylight, and even more efficiently with direct sunlight, to generate electricity.
Photovoltaic systems use cells to convert solar radiation into electricity. The PV cell consists of one or two layers of a semi conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers, causing electricity to flow.
PV systems generate no greenhouse gases, saving approximately 325kg of carbon dioxide emissions per year – adding up to about 8 tonnes over a system’s lifetime – for each kilowatt peak (kWp – PV cells are referred to in terms of the amount of energy they generate in full sun light).
