A Solar PV System or a photovoltaic (PV) system is composed of one or more solar panels combined with an inverter and other electrical and mechanical hardware. By harnessing energy from the sun we are able to generate electricity to use for use in other applications.
How does SolarPV work?
The light from the sun makes packets of energy called photons, these fall onto a solar panel and can create an electric current through a process called the photovoltaic effect.
Each panel produces a relatively small amount of energy but can be linked together with adjoining panels to produce higher amounts of energy as a solar array.
The electricity produced from a solar panel (or array) is in the form of direct current (DC). Through an inverter, the DC is then converted to AC (alternating current) enabling it to be used to power electrical devices around your home.
The support of the Government
To support the development of renewable energy, the Hong Kong Government has provided some incentives to those who install SolarPV to generate renewable energy.
Under the scheme, people who install SolarPV at their premises can sell the renewable energy they generate back to the power companies. This can be for as high as five times more than the normal electricity tariff rate.
We offer a buy and own scheme through a comprehensive service. Starting with the design of the SolarPV system, consultation and sourcing all materials necessary for the set-up of the project.
The SolarPV system integrates with EV Charging and RenatureChest. Cornerstone Technologies will help our customers integrate the energy generated through the SolarPV system into other products. EV Charging products and RenatureChest can benefit from stored electricity generated from the SolarPV system.
