Looking for installers of solar electricity panels, also known as photovoltaic (PV) cells, in Scotland? If so, then you’ve come to the right place.

GEO Living will work as suppliers and installers of photovoltaic panels across Edinburgh, Glasgow, Livingston, Fife and other areas in Scotland so that you can generate your own electricity while reducing your carbon footprint.

What are photovoltaic panels?
Photovoltaic (PV) panels capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells. The cells convert the sunlight into energy which can be used to run household appliances and lighting. The great news is that they will even work on cloudy days as they do not require direct sunlight.

how do photovoltaic cells workHow do photovoltaic panels work?
The photovoltaic cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, such as silicon. When light shines on these cells, an electric field is created across the layers and the stronger the sunlight, the more energy is produced. Most PV systems feature panels that will fit on top of an existing roof to help you generate your own electricity.

Larger systems are typically more cost effective than smaller systems, with sizes up to 4kWp available. Usually panels that are built into the roof will be more expensive than those that sit on top of the roof.

Can photovoltaic panels help you save money?
According to the Energy Saving Trust, the average system will cost around £11,700 with costs varying between installers. A 2.9kWp system can generate around 2,500 kilowatt hours every year – around three quarters of a household’s typical electricity needs. Indeed if your system is eligible for the government’s Feed in Tariffs, then photovoltaic cells could generate savings and income in the region of £1,200 every year as you will be paid for the generated electricity you use and feed back to the grid. In addition, they require very little maintenance.
