Solar module assembly is the final part of the manufacturing process of solar modules. For the assembly of a solar module, cells are soldered together to produce a string of cells. Quality standards have to be respected to guarantee high efficiency rates.
Solar energy can also be used for solar cooling. With photovoltaics every type of electrically powered air cooling is possible, i.e. with a conventional compressor. Solar thermal collectors can be used to drive adsorption or absorption chillers.
In the U.S., never before have there been as many financial incentives for solar installations as today! Governmental support includes tax credits, grants, industry support, and energy production incentives. Also States and utilities offer solar incentives.
A heat transfer fluid plays a vital role in the operation of solar water heating systems. It carries heat energy from the solar collectors through the heat exchanger and finally into the tanks that store the heat.
