Solar Power PV

Photovoltaic (PV) technology converts sunlight directly into electricity via silicon-based cells. Today, solar cells have typical conversion efficiencies of 15 to 20%. R&D programs are pushing the science to achieve efficiencies of greater than 50%. PV is used for Earth-orbiting satellites, remote telecommunication devices, municipal lighting, off-grid power, and grid-connected power through net-metering arrangements. The technology is very mature, well established, and remarkably reliable.To attest to its reliability, solar cells installed in the 70's are still operating today.



Advantages
  • PV allows you to produce electricity from a renewable energy source, giving your organization a competitive advantage when global fuel prices are continue to rise;
  • Many governments now give tax and rebate incentives, solar electric power can now pay for itself in five to ten years in many places;
  • The system produce electricity from a clean energy source, reducing air pollutants and green house gas emissions;
  • Attaching solar panels to individual houses or buildings can not only reduce your energy cost, but also assist your organization to obtain green building certifications such as LEED;
  • Low operating cost compared to existing power technologies.



    All industrialized and developing nations share a need for electricity and it is believed that solar power will increasingly be used as an option for supply. The Very Large Scale Photovoltaic Power Generation (VLS-PV) proposal argues that "PV systems could generate many times the current primary global energy supply". Photovoltaics is gaining credence among private investors as having the potential to grow into the next big in dustry.

    3Tech is one of the pioneers in Hong Kong that are investing in photovoltaic system design and installation. We have a wide range of products and services, such as framed PV panels, PV glass units and PV roof tiles and portable PV broadcasting system, that not only help you save energy, but also increase the profile of your organization.
