The simple fact is that the sun will deliver to the Earth’s atmosphere, in one year, the equivalent of double the total capacity of all of the Earth’s combined non-renewable resources (coal, oil, natural gas and uranium). In other words, if we now harness the sun’s energy in sufficient quantities, mankind will not only make a major impact on the planet – each one of us, in our domestic and working lives, can benefit. WIRSOL has become a European market leader in realising the sun’s immense potential for carbon-free energy production, with its Solar PV technology. Solar PV technology turns the light from the sun into clean, stable electrical power – how? Solar PV cells convert the photons present in natural sunlight into electrical energy, in essence by knocking the electrons into a higher state of energy, and thereby creating electricity.
A PV cell is made up of two layers of semi-conductors, one as positive and one as negative, which are most commonly made of silicon. The energy from the absorbed sunlight is transferred to the semiconductor; this process frees the electrons, allowing them to jump from one layer to the other, which in turn creates a small electrical current. This Direct Current (DC) is then fed into an inverter which transforms the current into Alternating Current (AC) for use in all standard electrical systems, whether for industrial purposes or in your home.
Wirsol are market leaders in photovoltaic consultation through to installation and support.
Not only is the sun’s energy free, it allows man to engage in energy production without the need for moving parts, without creating any noise or pollution, and causing no harm to the environment.
Finance and Feed-in-Tarrifs make solar technology a sensible investment opportunity.
