Solar Panels Ireland – Do We Have The Right Climate?
PV Solar Panels need sunlight to create electricity. The trees, the plants and the grass all need sunlight to survive. Daylight is sunlight, whether it is warm outside or not, once we have daylight we have sunlight. Ireland has one of the greenest landscapes in the world therefore solar panels in Ireland work perfectly.
People often ask if PV Solar Panels in Ireland will create power in the winter months, the answer is yes! We have less hours of daylight which means that the amount of power it produces on a short winter day is less than what a pv solar panel system can produce on a long brighter day.
Brands of Solar Panels in Ireland
There is quite a variety of brands of solar panels in Ireland. Any high-quality panel, regardless of the brand is known as a Tier 1 panel. Each brand of panel will have a range of power output sizes for example the Italian brand Peimar offer Pv solar panels in output sizes of 365w. The German manufactured panel QCells come in a wider variety ranging from 345w to 390w, generally the larger the watt of the panel the larger it is in physical size. Longi now come in outputs of 440w.
In simple terms you may need 11 x 365w panels to achieve a 4-kilowatt system, but you could achieve a 4kw system by using 10 x 440w panels. This is beneficial when you are restricted with roof space.
