Product Details

A Versatile Panel Which Generates Heat and Electricity Both

Standard PV Panels typically only convert 10-15% of solar radiation into electricity and the rest is dissipated as waste heat. Photovoltaic (PV) cells suffer from a drop in efficiency with the rise in temperature due to increased resistance. A PV-T (Photovoltaic-Thermal) collector generates both electricity and usable thermal heat at the same time from one panel. These systems combine a photovoltaic cell, which converts electromagnetic radiation (photons) into electricity, and a solar thermal collector, which captures the remaining energy and removes waste heat from the PV module, and thus improving their efficiency by lowering resistance.

Benefits for You

Electricity and usable thermal heat at the same time from one panel.

At least 25% extra electricity produced per year with cooled PV cells.

Waste heat is recovered to generate hot water, solar energy is fully utilized.

Two types of products based on different main purpose:

    Powertherm: biased towards thermal heat production.

    Powervolt: biased towards electrical generation.

Long lifetime and high reliability. 

Flexible and easy installation, suitable for different roofs.
