most solar panels are facing the wrong direction, say scientists
Friendly solar panels, according to energy experts, but most may have them installed in the wrong direction.
After one of the UK\'s leading experts, the solar power generation industry was urged to reconsider its approach to installing panels, said Professor Ralph gottschag of Loughborough University, too many solar panels are moving in the wrong direction.
Professor goteshag said that there are too many solar panels in Germany, which means that during the sunny summer lunch time, its power grid is interrupted, a lot of solar energy is very cheap and almost has to be abandoned.
He urged Britain to follow Germany\'s recent policy in the East-
The roof facing west to smooth the power supply during the day and prevent the peak of power at noon.
The conventional wisdom of the Northern Hemisphere is to face solar panels south so that they can be exposed to the Sun to the maximum extent during the day.
Emergency sunshine global solar dominance is in sight as science beats fossil fuels, ends solar farms and lights up the countryside as the subsidy scheme cancels the farmer\'s wife, threats to keep her husband on solar panels usually, especially on home solar panel installations, always use this method.
In November, a study in the United States showed that panels facing the West can actually get more energy from the sun at a more convenient time.
The study was conducted by the pecans Street Institute, which studies homes with solar panels in Austin, Texas.
Scientists have found that when homeowners face their panels in the West, they can generate more electricity every day.
When there was a peak demand for the grid, they also generated more electricity in the afternoon.
Although the growth rate is small
Only two cents.
Experts say it will definitely increase over the years.
In addition to this, the afternoon boost reduces peak-time dependence on the grid by 65, while the dependence on the south facing panel is reduced by 54, which may have a broad impact on efficiency outside a single home
Professor Michael wall of Loughborough University said: \"There are half a million South-facing facilities in the UK.
In order to maximize the power generation of these panels, it is correct to face south.
\"What we\'re saying is that if you turn the solar panels East --
Then you can even have a power outage during the day.
If you go east, you may lose about ten percent of power.
But this solves a problem that exists in Germany, because everything is facing the South, so you get this peak power at noon, which is very difficult for the grid.
\"So in Germany, they suggest people go east.
So they are smoothing out the power supply from all of these solar panels.
We also have similar peak power, although it doesn\'t make sense for people to replace solar panels if they are already installed.
\"We have two in total.
The UK has 8 gigawatts of solar power, but Germany has nearly 20 gigawatts of solar power.
In Cornwall, they could no longer install solar panels because the grid could not be handled.
Solar panels are made of photovoltaic (PV)
Conductive material, usually silicon.
When the light hits the battery, it generates an electric field between layers.
The stronger the Sun, the more electricity will be generated.
In the UK, the average domestic solar photovoltaic system is 3.
5 to 4 KWP, usually ranging from 5,500 to 9,500.
A 4kWp system can generate about 3,700 KW hours of electricity a year, roughly equivalent to the power needs of a typical household.
In addition to this, households using solar panels will get the minimum amount of all the electricity generated by the system, called FeedIn Tariff (Fit).
Currently, Fit is 14.
38 p per kilowatt hour (kwh)
For each additional unit of electricity, the annual revenue is approximately £ 785.
