The photovoltaic system – With the power of the sun
The photovoltaic system uses solar cells to convert a part of the sun’s radiation into solar electricity.
How does a photovoltaic system work?
The solar cells are connected together into so-called solar modules and generate direct current, which is converted to alternative current by inverters so it available for personal consumption or feeding into the grid. The possible generated quantity of energy depends on the location, the irradiance values and other influencing factors, such as fog or shade.
What advantages does electricity generation from photovoltaic systems offer?
The sun’s energy is essentially available free of charge and offers enormous potential as a regenerative source of energy. The use of photovoltaics is a zero-emission way to sustainably generate electricity because it doesn’t release any air pollution, such as fine particulates or greenhouse gases. Installing a photovoltaic system has a low impact on the environment and does not normally result in any land sealing.
