ARK Solar PV electrical generating system.
Solar PV technology allows you to generate electricity from daylight. It can be installed either connected to the grid or off-grid by charging battery banks. PV can be viewed as an investment. In addition your reliance on utility companies is reduced, and every Kw of installed PV will save half a tonne of Co2, every year for the 30-35 year life span of the system.
Ark buys our PV modules direct from the largest manufactures. Ark supplies the least mono and multi-cell modules. These give high performance, meaning that your installation will generate as much electricity as possible for every kw you buy.
PV modules (panels) generate DC (Direct Current) electricity. Our national grid cannot accept DC electricity so Ark install an inverter (the brain of the system) to convert the DC electricity into grid-ready AC (Alternating Current) electricity.
The AC electricity is then sent via an OFGEM meter (where you record how much electricity you have generated) to your fuse board, where the connection to the grid is made.
Ark designs your PV installation to allow you to use the free electricity that you generate, before you use the national grid. If you need more electricity than the PV installation is providing, you will automatically pick up the short fall from the grid, without disruption.
When you are generating electricity but not using it at all, the surplus goes back into where it can be used by the wider population.
Ark can install PV installations on roofs, walls and remotely on the ground. A South, East or West facing installation at a 20 – 45 degree angle will be most effective.
