2 The sun, is energy that is available for free which can be used in many ways Call us today 1 Energy from the sun can be used in three main ways, and when talking about solar energy it is important to distinguish between these three types: Passive heat This is heat that we receive from the sun naturally. This can be taken into account in the design of buildings so that less additional heating is required. Solar thermal Where we use the sun s heat to provide hot water for homes or swimming pools (also heating systems). Photovoltaic energy (PV) Uses energy from the sun to create electricity to run appliances and lighting. A photovoltaic system requires only daylight not direct sunlight to generate electricity.

3 The process of turning sunlight into electricity Photovoltaic is a marriage of two words: photo, from Greek roots, meaning light, and voltaic, from volt, which is the unit used to measure electric potential at a given point. The most common semi conductor material used in photovoltaic cells is silicon, an element most commonly found in sand. There is no limitation to its availability as a raw material; silicon is the second most abundant material in the earth s mass. Photovoltaic systems use cells to convert solar radiation into electricity. The cell consists of one or two layers of a semi-conducting material. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers, causing electricity to flow. The greater the intensity of the light, the greater the flow of electricity is. A photovoltaic system therefore does not need bright sunlight in order to operate. It can also generate electricity on cloudy days. Due to the reflection of sunlight, slightly cloudy days can even result in higher energy yields than days with a completely cloudless sky! 2 Call Us Today

9 The PVSOL Survey For every installation we produce a PVSOL Survey that gives an detailed independent report of how your system will perform. It is not a guarantee of how your system will perform but generally it is an underestimate, and you will see a higher than predicted production. Our Quotation system will also give you a good view of how the system performs and converts related to your income, showing you how much you will make over the 20 year NIROC period and how long it will take to pay for itself x aleo solar AG aleo S_79 280Wp 280 W 35 ; x SolaX Power Co., Ltd.
