Solimpeks Corp., a solar company based in Karatay, Turkey, has released the Volther hybrid solar collector, which produces electricity and hot water simultaneously. The product hybrid modules produced by Solimpeks Corp. allow extra module heat to be absorbed to produce hot water, thus optimizing efficiency, the company says. Historically, the main drawback of many conventional photovoltaic systems has been the high initial cost as well as the limited amount of electrical output when compared to the solar input. This Volther hybrid solar collector system allows excess heat to be recaptured and boosts the systemâ€™s return on investment, according to Solimpeks Corp.
The sun is source of infinite and it generates 10.000 more energy than what the world consumes.
There are two basic types of solar systems in use today.
- Solar collectors that makes normally hot water out of the energy from the sun.
- PV (Photovoltaic) modules, which convert sun lights into electricity.
This product combines these two technologies into a hybrid Solar PV, thermal collector named PV-T.Â Â The PV moduleâ€™s heat is absorbed to produce hot water so that PV efficiency can be optimized as the heat is transferred into fluid to produce hot water.
Advantages of the PV-T system
- Increased production efficiency of the PV module.
- Higher energy density for the overall system
- Hybrid PV/T systems ROI is shorter than the PV systems.
