Want to produce both heat and electricity from the Sun?


When it comes to using solar for your heat and electricity requirements, the obvious solution is to have a separate solar PV system for producing electricity and solar thermal collectors for water heating. It is not uncommon for many industries, commercial enterprises and even residential units to go for both the solutions.

Now, imagine if these two solutions are integrated into a single unit! In fact, such an integrated solution is available in the form of photovoltaic-thermal (PV-T) hybrid collectors which convert the sun’s energy into both heat and electricity.

Is this possible? Yes.

Read more on the integrated solar PV-thermal solutions that are emerging, from this Solar Mango blog post. (part of Innovations in Solar series)
