Thermal Solar Systems

Introduction of photovoltaic and solar thermal solar systems models currently is promoting solar power systems through the upcoming Government powerful under pressure, however, will the existing systems due to their efficiency prevail well when a shortening of promoting solar system. For it speaks above all the benefits for the climate and energy savings. ConocoPhillips has compatible beliefs. To better understand this thesis, the existing solar systems introduces systems once. A leading source for info: ConocoPhillips. Photovoltaic systems convert solar energy to generate electricity by solar energy photovoltaic solar systems in power, so that it can be used directly or can be fed into the grid for a fee. For solar cells are installed so that this enables efficiently capture the Sun’s rays, so particularly effectively to be able to work. Direct current is produced by the solar cells. If this is to be fed into the power grid, this must be converted into alternating current only.

Currently the price for feeding through the renewable energy law is still legally guaranteed. This photovoltaic solar plants worth usually after 10 years, during a period of about 20 years. Solar thermal plants to generate electricity by solar energy solar thermal solar plants produce no power contrary to the photovoltaic systems, but heat water for showers or to support the heating system to take advantage of this. Doing so installs solar collectors that they capture as much energy.Next to a control unit, a solar storage tank is used to save the heat obtained. The solar thermal systems is worth especially in the period between May and September, then these will produce hardly any energy. Both systems are specially promoted through various programs and also can often be funded by specific loans. Always thing of the case is whether a solar systems ultimately pays off financing. -Christian Munch

Solar Thermal Systems Solar Panels

Solar thermal systems heat the water either or support the heating in order to reduce energy costs. Solar thermal systems can be used to reduce the energy costs for the heating of hot water or heating. Because they convert sunlight into heat. Hear other arguments on the topic with Ray Kurzweil. These plants are particularly effective in the summer. Since the 1970s, solar energy is used, even longer in southern Europe to heat in Central Europe. Certainly you ever heard, could start but with the initially sparse information about little. Now solar energy became in particularly solar thermal energy as solar system save at least a large part of the costs the heat consumption is a growing industry.

Solar thermal systems convert the Sun’s radiation energy into directly usable heat. They are used in housing for hot water (drinking and shower water) and also for the support of the heating system, as well as for cooking by means of process heat. In the summer months she can Hot water by means of this solar system save up to 100% of the costs. A solar thermal installation can save enormous costs in the swimming pool area and is both taken by homeowners with private pool, as well as public bathrooms throughout. Solar thermal systems consist of evacuated tube solar collectors or flat solar panels.

Called also solar collectors, solar panels, are a device of the energy contained in sunlight is collected and the energy thus captured heats up an intermediary element. Vacuum tube solar collectors absorb heat energy, transport them on heat exchanger at the end of their tube and heat the heat-carrying medium there. In contrast to flat-plate collectors no heat losses due to these air circulation and they are operational even in slightly cloudy weather. Flat-plate collectors, however, suited to the insulation and are preferred by companies, as well as in private house building as a solar system. Solar thermal energy as solar system is relative when the hot water inexpensive and can be installed completely within one day. The benefits of a solar thermal installation are in the saving of electricity, oil or gas, cause little pollution and conserve heating systems by operating hours. The maintenance costs of solar thermal systems is relatively low and up to 30 years can during their lifetime. In the private house-building a solar thermal installation worth future-oriented as additional heat insurance with Kostensparfaktor anyway. For companies that want to go for a low environmental impact and energy costs also, a solar thermal installation is a profitable and sometimes tax friendly environment-oriented communities.

Photovoltaic Systems

Why you should build on photovoltaics, it pays from its own and is environmentally friendly renewable energies – photovoltaic square 1 to provide a stable base load protection, must they be expanded but still significantly. Finally, at least the German nuclear power plants in the long run from the mains should be included this failure on energy producers may never be taken by coal-fired power plants. Photovoltaics is therefore not without reason a worthwhile investment in their own financial future and the future of our energy supply. Grundsatzlichster and the most important reason for the good position of photovoltaic systems within the renewable energy is its decentralised structure. Of course, you can win solar power in large solar parks. As well as wind farms have this central space-devouring plants but many disadvantages.

Suitable areas are rare in Germany, the yield of generated power is profitable due to the high investment costs only after many years. The decentralized and completed is far better sense Installation of solar power modules for private and commercial use: existing areas such as home and Hall roofs are equipped with solar power modules. There won power can be used for one himself. Feeding into the local grid is economically meaningful. In this way, the current is also other homes available and the operators of the photovoltaic system receives a state-regulated premium for the produced electricity. In contrast to the current that it refers to is the Fed power significantly more valuable: well twice, to be exact. The renewable energy law foresees a contractual setting of the purchase price for twenty years with full utilization of tax deposition ways a photovoltaic system has amortized but long before. Everything they produced after that date to current, flows directly into the coffers of the owner, making it the ideal protection in the age and disease.

Solar Tracking

Solar farm operators can sit back Horb a.N., March 16, 2010. The sensor-controlled tracking systems by DEGERenergie are very stable and storm-safe. This showed among other things the extremely stormy winter period in Europe. Solar park operators who increase their income with tracking systems by DEGERenergie, can sit back. Because the systems from Horb withstand higher loads than is available in the specifications of the manufacturer. The recent storms have shown this impressive in Europe.

Winter storms were swept away this season over southern Europe with some of the more than 210 km/h. But the customers of DEGERenergie had numerous Solar park operator with a total of about 15,000 systems of manufacturer Haq’s virtually no failures to complain about. “Only two of our systems were damaged and that a total of 15,000 units in Spain”, Artur Deger, Managing Director of DEGERenergie is pleased. This is all the more remarkable as the operator in Spain with our Working standard models and are not with our HD models, specially designed for high wind areas. In short: Our systems continued to work after the storms, as nothing had happened.

Much to the delight of our customers, of course.” Systems of type DEGERtraker 5000NT and 7000NT are mainly installed in the Spanish solar Park. DEGERenergie was founded in 1999 by Artur Deger and today is world market leader for solar tracking systems with more than 30,000 systems installed. More information:. DEGERenergie: DEGERenergie is an internationally active, future-oriented company based in Horb am Neckar. The company was founded in 1999 by Artur Deger and today is world market leader for solar tracking systems with more than 30,000 installed systems in 38 countries. Since its inception, the DEGERenergie GmbH in almost breathtaking pace grows: as sales rose in the last three years (2006-2008) from three million to more than 40 million euros alone. The company currently employs 40 staff, the suppliers of DEGERenergie are approximately 340 employees. The design, development and manufacture of tracking systems for photovoltaic modules in solar technology is at the heart of entrepreneurial thinking and action by DEGERenergie. Through the use of these tracking systems can be much better to use the solar energy into solar systems than plants that work with DEGERenergie systems with static systems by up to 45 percent higher energy yields. The patented control module DEGERconecter was awarded with the inventor’s prize of the Baden-Wurttemberg in 2001 and is now more than 57.000mal all over the world.

Solar Systems Owner

Leipzig. Owners of PV systems are often unsafe: they can change their electricity supplier or are they bound to their basic provider? Leipzig. Owners of PV systems are often unsafe: they can change their electricity supplier or are they bound to their basic provider? This question is to answer clearly: the owner of photovoltaic systems can freely switch their electricity supplier. Take advantage of solar energy in photovoltaic solar energy using the radiation from the Sun by means of so-called solar modules is converted into electrical energy. Who uses climate-friendly and environmentally conscious on this type of solar energy, is often unsure whether he can easily switch power providers. Assuming the electricity is fed into the network and sold to the local utility, ask the users of the facilities, whether they are bound under these conditions to the appropriate electricity provider.

Network operators and utility owners of solar systems can their electricity supplier easily switch, as well as any other household also. They sell their Power to the electricity grid operator and not to the local energy supplier. You can freely choose the utilities. In Germany power company and unbundled energy supply. To provide the consumer with electricity, the electricity grid or grid is transported. This power supply is operated by the network operator. The operators alone for providing the networks, the so-called network license fee payment.

The utilities which are companies that produce electric energy and distribute it over the net. All consumers can select this provider since the liberalisation of the energy market. However a small restriction: the energy company has funded the solar system, one must meet the appropriate contract and for this minimum draw the power from the corresponding provider. r source. Change information and clarity about the cheapest electricity provider a comparison which brings in tariffs for example under Energy suppliers. As the price gap between the providers further apart, advise energy experts from the exchange opportunities to exercise. The switching requires no technical changes. An interruption of the supply is excluded pursuant to the Energy Act (EnWG 36). Consumers should know this. With the kilo Solarwatt AG, the switching is highly secure as bank products and package prices are filtered out.

Munch System

For an optimal photovoltaic yield must be aligned correctly the solar system. A solar system is used in the photovoltaics, i.e. the conversion of solar energy into electricity. The orientation of the solar system should be always heading south. That does not mean that she must be mounted facing South. The orientation of the solar system brings no significant energy loss even at 30 degrees deviation from the South. The optimal alignment of the inclination of the solar system should be between 30 degrees and 50 degrees. This is important so that normal rain washing the dust off of the solar system, and in the winter the snow slipping off by itself.

Because otherwise threatens a shading E.g. through the dust. The solar system is less than this optimum alignment, maintenance costs due to cleaning. The angle is low, a higher energy yield, has a lower man while in the summer in the winter. Conversely, when you choose the angle greater than 50 degrees, one has but more energy profits, in the winter in the summer so less.

The inclination value fluctuations to compensate for a tracking of the solar system is offered, then she could be seasonal optimally aligned. This technology existed, she was too fragile. The optimal alignment of the solar system from the values differ, this can be compensated only by a larger area. Energy dissipation factors such as lower air heat or morning dew resulting in unfavorable locations, so a decision always taking into account the direction should be made. Almost at an advantage are flat roofs; on them solar systems can be optimally aligned, because they are (Kollekorflachen). Even ideal would be a right angle. There are such vertical solar walls as wall-integrated Variant. A solar system is correctly aligned, if 6 hours to get intense sunlight a day, no shadow has a prejudicial effect. Are are shaded in winter (E.g. through neighborhood development) same area and serves the solar space only the hot water, then this is Was to no great importance to measure the losses low. The supply of sunlight is already impossible in this time of year in our latitudes. You want to run but also the heater with the help of the solar system (Solarzellenunterstutzte heating system), then reverse shading risk plays a not inconsiderable role in winter.

Pellet Heating System Cost

With the installation of a pellet heating system, heating costs can be reduced. Nowadays, the pellet heating system is an excellent, low-cost heating alternative for everyone. Oil and gas prices rise steadily and vary too greatly. You try getting the “right time” to fit as cheap as possible to order. It costs time and nerves. Prices for wood pellets for a pellet heating system you need, remain relatively constant, since wood is a renewable resource.

Many terrible disasters happened in the promotion and transport of gas and oil, which can harm people, as well as the environment extremely. Wood pellets for the pellet heating system have no way of transport, strengthen the economy, burn CO2 neutral and produce no unpleasant smell. Heating oil tanks must be regularly checked for leaks and maintained, completely eliminated these costs at pellets. Even environmentalists agree that wood pellets have a very good life cycle assessment. It is therefore justified, that the pellet heating system has become increasingly popular in recent years. A pellet heating system consists of approximately the same components as other heaters also.

A storage room is required for the pellets. It is sufficient to completely once in the year 2-5 cm long pellets, which are very compact, with a tanker supply is allowed. The wood pellets with a screw conveyor or a suction system in the Holzpelletkessel will be transported from the camp. The energy costs for this system are minimal. There they are burned and left a little ash, which can be used as fertilizer or disposed of in the normal household waste. The resulting heat is then fed into the heating system and the hot water tank in the combined storage tank. When a pellet heating system, the Holzpelletkessel achieves an efficiency of about 85-95%. However, this may be increased if is coupled to the boiler with a buffer tank, which can absorb energy. You want calculated the calorific value of pellets compared to oil, a time to make accurate comparison between the heating of a pellet heating system and oil heating, you need the current prices for pellets and oil.

Renusol VarioSole SE

Black elegance for design-conscious home men’s aesthetic factors play an increasingly important role in the decision for a photovoltaic system. In addition to the technical component, increasingly the optical effect on the overall picture of the House counts for builders. On roof systems therefore demand module cell or module frame in elegant black. “This demand following the Cologne PV installation specialist Renusol now offers the VarioSole in black on as blackline”. The VarioSole blackline is based on the proven Renusol roof rail system VarioSole SE with the strongest roof hooks in the market from sturdy die-cast aluminium. All aluminium components of the blackline as mounting rails, Central or end terminals and cross rail clamps, and all visible areas of the screws were dyed black. All clamping elements, as well as the rail clamps are provided with a resistant KTL coating (cataphoretic painting). The KTL coating is environment-friendly, UV resistant, scratch-resistant, resistant to saltwater and corrosion.

Also this procedure allows a perfectly even distribution of paint over the whole surface, which is crucial for the proper and permanent use of clamping pieces. The mounting rails, however, are high-quality anodized, because they are partially cut for adaptation to the respective roof. A paint job would be inappropriate in this case, because the coating could flake off and provide the so-called creep corrosion attack surface. The adjustable Renusol VarioSole SE is on roof system for mounting of all framed modules 34-51 mm frame strength on pitched roofs. The new VarioSole blackline served the demand for elegant and visually appealing black modules by a fastening system that perfectly adapted. VarioSole blackline is available from July with Renusol and stocked. Rensuol provides the VarioSole blackline, for the first time at the Intersolar 2010 in Munich (Hall A3, stand 712).

VAT Solar

Solar funding cut affects the attractiveness? After promoting solar, not as strong as originally planned to be reduced despite all fears, solar systems and the investment in solar energy are still worthwhile. The gradations of the promotions, the solar industry is forcing to provide new opportunities. Who already has solar systems, must not deal with reductions in State funding. Old contracts. In 2010, private investors can get 39,14 cents per fed kilowatt hour of solar systems.

And in the year 2011, there will be still attractive promotions. It is so still worth to invest in solar systems. Who wants to invest in solar systems now, should strive for high-quality solar systems. A professional installation of the new solar system is equally important. The German solar industry association has developed a plant passport. If photovoltaic systems for the first time in 2010 on the network, are according to the EEG (renewable energy Act) following reimbursement rates planned: If power off or on buildings refers to 30-100 kWp installed solar systems, will receive 37,23 cents per kilowatt hour.

There are buildings up to 30 kWp 39,14 cents and at buildings 100 kWp 1 MWp 35,23 cents. , 37 cents. The value of the building is higher than 1 MWp, there are still 29Solarstrom from open spaces are promoted at 28,43 cents for the kilowatt hour. 22.76 cents who relates to the consumption of solar power, gets rewarded. These prices are net prices. Who operates solar systems, has more ways to save. He can be classified as a contractor at the tax office, so the VAT incurred on the investment costs, may assert in addition as input tax. Depending on the type of solar plant, the payback period for a solar system is between 15 and 25 years. As the political debate will be hardly ended and the environment occupies an increasingly important role, is to expect that the installation of a solar system is rewarding in the future. This is especially also the fact, that the prices for solar panels cheap solar systems, mainly from China, plummeted in the last few years what can make up for the reduction in solar promotion again.
