Security system for PV installations of GREALTEC
One of the challenges of autonomous solar system designers is to ensure the facilities against theft and manipulation.
The location of many of these systems, in places away from the populations, make these facilities especially vulnerable to this type of theft.
GREATEC has developed a revolutionary anti-theft system and monitoring by means of Plastic Optical Fiber.
We are used to receiving at home electricity bill, but do we really know what is all that in it? With this article you will understand better.
Myths about energy saving
We have long been hearing about how to save electricity in our homes or businesses. The economic value of energy bills is increasing and we must try to reduce it as much as possible. Earlier this year we tell you 10 tips for saving energy in 2015. You can read the article here if you’re interested (only in Spanish for the moment, sorry). We continue to expand the list of tips to help you understand that the final user has a great capacity for saving with simple gestures of everyday, but today we prefer tell you myths about energy saving. Ideas that might have been heard in our homes for a long time and that some of them, even though with good intentions, are not right. Take a look:
In the photovoltaic market you can find 3 different types of solar panels considering the quality of them:
- Panels Grade A: Without any manufacturing defect.
- Panels Grade B: With some manufacturing defects that do not affect performance. Its price is lower than Grade A.
- Panels Grade C: With manufacturing defects affecting performance. Its price is the lowest of all.
Solar Impulse 2, the first plane in the world powered by solar energy
Today has taken off in Abu Dhabi (UAE) successfully the plane Solar Impulse 2, which will go around the world without fuel, powered only by solar energy.
New project in Apple?
This news came to light at the same time of the new Tesla battery. According to The Wall Street Journal, more than a thousand workers would be working under the utmost discretion in Titan, the iCar of the Californian company which, according to the rumors surrounding Apple, would be a minivan with 100% electric propulsion and will incorporate iOS system.
New technological developments, by Tesla
Technological developments related to renewable energies don’t stop progress.
Today we talk about the new battery by Testa, the company that designs, manufactures and sells electric cars and components for electric vehicle propulsion. Elon Musk, founder of the company, has announced they will go further and promises a battery capable of storing renewable energy that will reach households in six months, which will end up with the electricity bill in homes and the dependence on power companies.
Unfortunately, one of the most common problems of photovoltaic systems is their lack of security. Many times we find thefts who abduct photovoltaic solar panels and other elements of installations causing large economic losses and problems in the supply of electricity. In our efforts to provide the most complete solutions to our customers, we have several anti-theft security systems for photovoltaic systems:
Security for PV facilities
With this article we end up with the myths and facts about LEDs. You can read the other articles here and here.
Here we are another week with news. This time we leave the second part of the myths and realities about the LEDs. You can read the first part of this article here.
