Solar PV


The photovoltaic word comes from photos, meaning light, and voltaic referring to electricity (Alessandro Volta inventor of the stack). Photovoltaic systems convert solar energy into electrical energy, ie electricity generated from sunlight by using devices called solar cells. Some of the first applications of this type of energy supply were the teams that needed a high reliability (space satellites, telecommunications, etc.), Since energy is a finite resource that uses a complimentary.


Photovoltaic conversion presents as advantages its simplicity, modularity, reliability and operability. These facilities have a high shelf life, without the presence of moving parts and maintenance required to keep the installation is reduced in perfect condition.

From the environmental standpoint, solar PV is a clean energy, without any impact on the environment. This is because it is an energy that combustion does not occur any or noises are generated, no harmful emissions or polluting gases. Just as, nor are changes of groundwater or surface water or consumption, nor waste pollution or spills.

Photovoltaic systems can be grouped into two main groups:
- Facilities autonomous or isolated from the mains

  • Telecommunications
  • Rural electrification
  • Agricultural applications
  • Applications livestock
  • Public Lighting
  • Signaling
  • Control
  • Rural development
  • - Facilities connected to the mains
  • Reduction of electricity bills
  • Sale of electricity to the grid
