Here's another informative issue for all of us. The awareness and push to go green has been greater than ever, thanks to the concentrated efforts of corporations, organizations, and the media. From recycling to using earth-friendly materials to efficient energy consumption, there are now myriad of ways to minimize one’s carbon footprint and save money in the long run.
To do both, one of the more efficient and effective ways is through the use of solar power technology, or photovoltaic panels also called PVs. The said system collects energy from the sun to generate electricity, which can then be used to power a portion of a home or office’s electrical needs.
Solar energy reduces the amount of fossil fuel that is burned, which subsequently reduces the pollutants and CO² that make it to the atmosphere. Depending on the type of system, a complete home or office set-up normally powers select appliances such as lights, air-conditioners, and certain electrical outlets.
Typically installed on rooftops, solar panels collect DC power and send it to an inverter which then converts it into AC (alternating current) power. The AC power goes from the inverter to the electrical panel, where it now becomes ready to use. Once the solar system produces more power than needed, the meter actually spins backwards. A home or office is still, of course, connected to the utility grid so it can get as much power as it needs outside of what the solar system produces.
Whether for a home or office, the solar system you need must be customized in order to get the best possible performance, which subsequently will bring about the best cost and energy savings as well.
Green Heat (GH), a locally-owned business engaged in the design, installation, and maintenance of solar PV systems, has the right technology, expertise as well as experience to do the job right. Green Heat has been part of numerous large scale projects such as the ADB solar power plant, the Rural Electrification of the Philippine government, and other private installations.
Green Heat uses silicon-powered technology: the world's most dependable solar technology. With over 40 years of demonstrated field performance, silicon modules have continued to outlast and outperform other solar technologies.
Since roofs have limited space for solar modules, GreenHeat’s panels have higher module efficiencies. This means each panel works better in absorbing energy. Moreover, GH’s panels have “Enhanced weak light performance,” where the solar glass ensure that the panels perform well under real world, low light conditions.
GH’s panels are also low-maintenance since they have “self cleaning” technology where a
special layer in the high quality solar glass of the modules causes water to run off more quickly, thereby enabling the glass to clean itself of dust and dirt.
Solar PV panels are, of course, just a part of the entire system. As the saying goes, “You’re only as strong as your weakest link.” In solar PV technology, the rest of the system has to be just as efficient and reliable; otherwise the best panels won’t give you the ideal return of investment.
This is something that Green Heat can do for its customers. By providing a turn-key service, Green Heat provides clients a complete assessment of their solar energy requirements during the proposal stage that cover system design and cost. Once the go signal is given by the client, GH executes the design plan and turns over the system after a series of tests. With a one-year after sales warranty, clients can be assured that their solar PV set-up will be a reliable one.
So if you’re looking to the future of energy, start today with solar PV technology. It’s an investment that goes a long way in saving you money, and the environment.
