Photovoltaic power systems allow you to harness the
sun's energy for many purposes. These systems are a very reliable
and clean source of electricity that can suit a wide range of
Recreational vehicles, boats and expeditions can also benefit from
the clean and quiet operation of portable photovoltaic systems to
recharge batteries. Agriculture-PV systems are used
effectively worldwide to pump water for livestock, plants or
humans. Since the need for water is greatest on hot sunny
days, photovoltaic energy is a perfect fit for pumping
applications. Photovoltaic is also used to power remote
electric fences on farms.
PV Systems can be adapted to
suit any requirement, small or large. For instance, Photovoltaic
cells are used in calculators and watches. As well,
telecommunications equipment, highway construction signs, parking
lights and navigational warning signals are excellent applications
for photovoltaic energy.
photovoltaic solar energy include:
- Safe from air pollution: Some greenhouse gasses and other air
pollutants come from the generation of electricity using
fossil fuels. A photovoltaic system
reduces the amount of electricity that needs to be generated using
conventional generation sources, which in turn,
reduces overall electricity generation emissions.
- Does not make noise: photovoltaic systems have no moving parts
and produce electricity silently.
- Other pollution: PV systems do not produce hazardous waste
byproducts. By supplementing the existing electricity
generating infrastructure, PV systems help
mitigate the need to build new power plants.
- Highly reliable
- Require virtually no maintenance;
- Operate cost-effectively in remote areas and for many
residential and commercial applications;
- Flexible and can be expanded at any time to meet your
electrical needs; and
- Give you increased autonomy - independence from the grid or
backup during outages.
