Photovoltaic solar energy: producing electricity from the sun

 It is an indisputable fact: the production of electricity using solar panels is experiencing exceptional growth in the world.

Aztechsolar is no exception to this trend: the number of companies promoting it continues to grow. Solar panels are more and more affordable, but what is their real environmental performance? Is it a profitable option in Newcastle? How should you proceed if self-generation of electricity interests you? Here is some important information to help you make an informed decision.

Photovoltaic solar energy

Photovoltaic solar energy is sunlight collected and transformed directly into electricity by means of solar panels.

As solar energy production is intermittent, the autoproducer must use storage devices or be connected to the Hydro network, benefiting from the net metering option , to be supplied with electricity continuously.

Solar potential 

In terms of equivalent hours of sunshine, the solar Panel in southern new castle is interesting compared to that of other regions of the world. On the other hand, the accumulation of snow affects the real performance of photovoltaic solar panels in Quebec.

In southern newcastle, each kilowatt of installed capacity can produce up to 1,200 kWh per year. Therefore, solar panels totaling 4 kW can produce up to 4,800 kWh per year.

Solar thermal energy

This type of energy is produced from thermal solar panels placed on the roof of the house to capture the heat of the sun. How does it work ? It's simple: thermal solar panels contain heat transfer fluids. Once heated by the sun, they in turn heat the hot water tank. The solar thermal energy thus obtained can be used in different ways: solar heating , water heaters, stoves ...

Thermodynamic solar energy

Thermodynamic solar energy, on the other hand, is produced by concentrating solar power plants. This equipment is composed of mirrors with heat transfer fluids and a solar electricity generator . Like thermal solar panels, these mirrors convert the energy provided by solar radiation into heat, but at a considerably higher temperature. The latter can, moreover, range from 250 to 800 ° depending on the techniques used. The heat thus obtained will then be converted into electrical energy by activating the turbo-alternator.

Solar energy: what future?

Thanks to technological developments, solar energy has a bright future ahead. Indeed, solar panels may represent an interesting investment, many are still reluctant to use them because of their unsightly appearance and their size. Innovative solutions are then being studied at the moment. Others are even already marketed to a few companies. Among the most promising are solar tiles, solar glazing and solar bricks.
