Aesthetics and Energy

Photovoltaic plants enchant with aesthetics; no energy source is more popular than solar energy.

Already 40 square metres of roof surface are sufficient to cover the annual power need of a 4-headed family with solar modules. No other country uses solar energy for energy production as intensely as Germany on small and big roofs just as on free-fields.

Solar Modules

A solar module converts the light of the sun directly into electric energy. As the most important components, it contains several solar cells (mostly on silicon base) or is made out of solid-state materials in thin layer technology. Solar modules are panelled individually or in groups in PV plants connected to the grid or used by independent consumers.

Inverter

An inverter is an electric device that converts DC voltage into AC voltage direct power. Inverters reach efficiencies of up to 98 per cent, they are applied where an electric consumer needs alternating voltage, but where only one DC voltage  is available, such as in a car battery; or where the output of a DC voltage source shall be fed into the a.c. network, as in photovoltaics.

Rack Technology

These components are used for the establishment of photovoltaic plants on free-fields and roof surfaces in order to fasten the solar modules with the desired inclination on the ground or roof. They are made of steel and aluminium.
