    How does solar power work?
    Before we look at the many and varied innovations G&P now have on offer, you may need to properly understand solar power application. Sure, everyone knows the fundamental idea – solar cell panels absorb sunlight and convert this into electricity – but there are different ways to use, distribute and convert this energy that allow you the flexibility to best use solar energy in your daily life.
    Does the kind of cell used on a solar panel make a difference?
    Yes, it does. Traditionally, solar cells have been made from monocrystalline cells, but G&P have developed special polycrystalline cells that can be effectively used in many products. These panels are constructed to provide the same level of energy output, but are less intensive to create, meaning that both the carbon footprint and cost of solar panel productions are reduced. These savings are then passed straight on to you, our valued customer, making G&P both the most environmentally effective and economically competitive solar specialist on the planet.
    Can I use the power from solar panels only when they are exposed to sunlight?
    Many G&P products are complete units, including not only solar panelling but also the item they are powering (such as the incredible solar lawn fountain) – for these, the system is already tailored so that the panels will output the exact amount of energy required. But for detached solar power systems used as a way of powering the items you already have, each appliance needing to be powered will have a different watt requirement. The watt potential of any panel, or set of panels, will differ based on the strength and size of the panels and, of course, the amount of sunlight they are exposed to. So how do you get the right amount of energy needed to power what you need to?
