United Kingdom

Overview: Solar Power in the United Kingdom

Solar power represented only a very small part of electricity production in the United Kingdom (U.K.) until the 2010s when it increased greatly. The sudden and rapid increase of solar power can be attributed to the fact that most of the new installations in that decade were subsidized with a feed-in tariff (FIT), as well as the fact that the cost of photovoltaic panels was — and has been — rapidly falling.

As of 2019, the installed capacity in the U.K. has been over 13 GW. With the 72 MW (DC), Shotwick Solar Farm is the largest solar project in the U.K., but its peak generation was only less than 10 GW. Since panels have a capacity factor of around 10% in the U.K. climate, the average annual generation is roughly the installed capacity multiplied by 1000 hours, being slightly under 13 TWh in 2018 which is somewhat under 4% of the U.K. electricity consumption.

PV Cable

Wholesale PV Wires & Cables

Solar wires and cables, which are also called solar panel cables and PV wires, refer to wires used to connect solar panels with the photovoltaic system.

Choosing the right wire for solar energy systems is critical for solar users for their smooth functioning and remaining intact. Getting these wires wrong and choose PV wires that are too small for a PV system, the battery bank may not charge fully and as a result, the appliances consumers use, may not work at their full capacity.

Types of Solar Wires and Cables

  • Single metal wire core
  • Multi-stranded conductor type wires

The types of electrical wires or solar panel wires are according to their conductor type. If a wire has a single metal wire core, it is a single-stranded conductor. If it has a multiple wire core, it is a multi-stranded conductor. So, there are basically two wire types.

Difference between a single-stranded conductor and a multi-stranded conductor

The difference between a single-stranded conductor and a multi-stranded conductor is that the use of a single-stranded conductor type wire is common in domestic wiring and works fine for a solar system.

Multi-stranded conductor-type wires perform better in the environments with continuous vibration, such as mobile applications in cars, planes, boats, and trains.

Also, if an area is prone to frequent and extremely high winds, it is ideal to consider multi-stranded conductor wires as they are more flexible and durable.

Sunlight Resistant PV Wire Ratings

Their Amps rate the efficiency of wires and cables for solar systems.

The higher the rating of the current (amps), the thicker the PV wire has to be. If a solar system produces 7 amps, a minimum of 7-amp wire is required. It will be even better to go for a little higher like 9 or 10-amp wire, just to make sure it can handle the current.

If solar users use wires rated at fewer amps than their solar systems produce, the voltage will drop, and the solar panel wire will most likely heat up and eventually may even catch fire causing damage to the solar energy system and to the home.

Solar wires and cables are like plumbing pipes. If too much water pressure (amps) flows through them, they will burst. Therefore, the system would need a bigger pipe (wire) that can handle the pressure (amps) produced by the solar system.

Features of High-quality Wires and Cables:

  • Optimum performance
  • High-tensile strength
  • Low maintenance.
  • Sunlight Resistant
