Solar cells generate solar power in DC, but the power grid and most buildings need AC. To invert one into the other is the job of the inverter. Some ideas about the technology.
In Pingshan, BYD has built a modern factory for lithium batteries. The production is almost fully automatic and of high quality. As in photovoltaics before, Asia is beginning to dominate the production of battery cells and modules. The factory uses solar power from its own roof.
Jinko Solar, one of the leading solar module manufacturer in the world, announced that it has supplied nine megawatts of PV solar modules to juwi Hellas S.A., for their first 1500V DC system in Greece.
If you have large amounts of roof area, you should definitely use it for solar generators. Solar electricity substantially lowers your energy costs – if you know the devices that consume too much power!
EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg is expanding its engagement in the solar sector. The utility currently has a solar project pipeline of over 800 MW.
The holy city of Mecca is held sacred by nearly two billion Muslims, to whom the colour green also has a special significance. Thus it was obvious to give the solar modules on the roof of one of the mosques in Mecca that colour.
Sakka 300 MW PV plant in Saudi Arabi will integrate Huawei`s Fusion Solar 1500 Smart PV Solution to increase its yield. The project won a bidding with a record low price of 2.3417 US cents/kWh.
PV manufacturer Znshine have developed a graphene coating for their solar panels. By making the modules virtually self-cleaning, this not only lowers maintenance costs but also promises higher yields.
