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.

PINK DIAMOND: ORIGIN,SHADES,VALUE

The pink diamond is one of the rarest gems in the world. Its pure natural color could be seen only by a few people working in jewelry. For the first time, a Pink diamond was found in Brazil, and then in India and Australia. The unusual color of the stone has not yet been fully studied. There are several different assumptions about the origin of the diamond shade. The first of them suggests that such a  Pink diamond  appeared due to the simultaneous exposure to high temperature and pressure for hundreds and thousands of years. The second, that the mineral was joined by impurities in the form of manganese and ferruginous ores. At the moment, pink diamond has over 20 shades. The pure color of the stone without admixtures of other shades is very rare, and their price reaches $ 1 million per carat. Very often, colors such as purple, orange, brown and yellow are mixed with a gem. The first two colors increase the cost, and the last two decrease. The saturation of the diamond is equally impo
