Photovoltaic Solar Power Plant
A photovoltaic solar power plant uses the energy from the sun's rays to generate electricity with the installation of photovoltaic solar panels. Solar panels are formed by light-sensitive metals, mostly taking the form of fine sheets of monocrystalline, polycrystalline and amorphous silicon, which release electrons when photons cross their path, generating direct current electricity.
The electricity produced may be self-consumed and stored in batteries or sold to the grid.
The generation of photovoltaic solar energy has many environmental, image and cost savings benefits, including:
- The sun is a free and inexhaustible source of energy.
- It does not pollute, does not emit CO2 or other gases
- High versatility as they can be installed in a range of spaces and locations.
- Photovoltaic technology is highly tried and tested.
- Reduced maintenance costs.
- Improves corporate image to the investor owing to its generation of clean energy
- It does not pollute, does not emit CO2 or other gases.
