Solar Photovoltaic

solar_pv1.jpgHow Does It Work?

Photovoltaic systems use cells to convert sunlight into electricity. The PV cell consists of one or two layers of a semi-conducting material. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers causing electricity to flow.

Ecofit Energy Systems offer solar panels from a number of major manufacturers with a choice of efficiency, warranty, size and cost. We will discuss with you the options available and agree a panel manufacturer and model with you based on your requirements. Listed below are some of the most popular products we install.



For more than 30 years Panasonic has been setting standards for the development of new, innovative and high performance photovoltaic products. Panasonic modules are highly efficient and produce more power per square metre than traditional products, and therefore you will need fewer modules on your roof to accomplish very high performance.


Sharp is one of the world’s oldest and largest solar panel manufacturers and has their European factory sited at Wrexham in North Wales. They produce a range of high quality and very cost effective Monocrystalline and polycrystalline modules ranging from 180W – 235W.

Feed-In Tariffs scheme (FITs)

If you install an electricity-generating technology from a renewable or low-carbon source such as solar PV or wind turbine, the UK Government's Feed-In Tariffs scheme (FITs) could mean that you get money from your energy supplier.

You can be paid for the electricity you generate, even if you use it yourself, and for any surplus electricity you export to the grid. And of course you'll also save money on your electricity bill, because you'll be using your own electricity.
