Photovoltaic: The best tips for your solar system
Who taps the solar energy by solar technology, minimizes its electricity costs. The environmentally friendly electricity also contributes to reducing CO2 emissions. What should you pay attention to when it comes to photovoltaics? I give you tips for your solar system.
Photovoltaic and solar thermal – the difference
Colloquially, the term solar system stands for both photovoltaic and solar thermal, although these are different methods:
In a solar thermal system, the energy of the sunlight is converted into heat. This is made possible by thermal solar collectors and a water-antifreeze mixture as heat transfer medium.
By contrast, photovoltaics (PV) convert the power of the sun into electricity using solar cells.
