Solar energy is a 100% renewable source that is very versatile in its potential applications. It can power homes, schools, public institutions and even industrial plants. As a clean energy source with immense potential (enough sunlight strikes the earth in an hour and a half to cover the entire planet’s energy needs for an entire year), solar energy is increasing in popularity across the globe.
Resalta puts photovoltaic technology at its clients’ disposal. Photovoltaic panels are made of cells that absorb photons from sunlight, which creates an electric field that is then harnessed for use in nearby buildings, communities or released into the power grid. The modular structure of photovoltaics makes them uniquely adaptable to all sorts of energy consumers, whether big or small. The system is completed with inverters that convert the direct current generated by solar energy into alternative current.
The main shortcoming of solar panels are the cyclical nature of solar energy. However battery storage allows consumers to store energy accumulated during the day for later use. For photovoltaics installed on the ground, tracking mechanisms allow cells to rotate to follow the sun’s progression to maximize exposure and generated energy.
Resalta can design and implement large-scale photovoltaic installations that take full advantage of the readily available renewable energy source that is solar energy.
