Solar Power System
Solar Power System
CO2 emission without/with a solar heating system.

Systems used to transform Solar Radiation into useful energy in the form of heat (Solar Heating) or electricity (Photovoltaics).

The most important components of a Solar Heating System are the Collector, the water storage tank (Heat Storage Device) and the Regulator.

The most important components of a photovoltaic system are the Solar Cells, which when connected together form a Solar Module (or solar Panel) and the storage Battery. If the electricity produced is fed into the grid (Grid Coupling), then it is done so through the use of an Inverter in order to convert the direct current (DC) from the photovoltaic system into the correct voltage and phase of the grid’s alternating current (AC).

The ecological advantages of solar power systems—up to 50% reduction in the demand for conventional heating, and with that less CO2 emissions—cause only small extra costs.
