PVT - Photovoltaic-Thermal Panels

Understanding PVT Panels: Traditional solar panels, known as photovoltaic (PV) panels, are designed to convert sunlight into electricity. However, the Photovoltaic-Thermal (PVT) panel takes this a step further and seamlessly integrates solar PV panels used for electricity generation and solar thermal collectors used for heating purposes, merging the capabilities of electricity generation and heat collection into one unit. This dual functionality allows users to harvest the sun's energy more comprehensively: they can generate electricity and heat water concurrently using the same surface area. As the renewable energy landscape rapidly advances, the integration of two primary solar technologies has paved the way for an efficient and space-saving solution.

The Dual Benefits of PVT Panels:

Why Consider PVT Panels: For businesses and homeowners with limited roof space or for those aiming to optimize their solar energy yield, PVT panels present an attractive solution. Not only do they streamline the infrastructure needed for solar energy capture, but they also offer potential cost savings by reducing the need for separate systems.

Example: Solarus - Revolutionizing Hot Water Solutions for the Hospitality Industry
