Power Collector™

What is….

The Solarus Power CollectorTM is a concentrating, hybrid solar photovoltaic and solar thermal panel. Concentrating means that it has a curved mirror to collect and reflect more sunlight throughout the day. Hybrid means that it combines solar photovoltaic (PV) generation of electricity with solar thermal (T) generation heat.

It is a C-PVT Power Collector™

Both Active Cell Cooling (ACC) and MaReCo (Maximum Reactor Collector) technologies, makes the Power Collector  the absolute highest performing thermal collector on the planet. Furthermore, the Power Collector is the first PVT system that can be mounted in-roof.

Where is it used…

RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS
Our Power Collector is an efficient product to provide residential homes with clean & abundant solar energy.

HOSPITALITY
The Power Collector is ideally suited to be employed in the hospitality industry where an attractive electricity / heat profile is used.

  • Heating your tap water such as for showering
  • Heating water for cleaning purposes
  • Heating up your swimming pool
  • Heating water to heat spaces

FOOD INDUSTRY
When hot water is used in industrial processes, there is a business case for the Power Collector. In the Food & Beverage industry a lot of hot water is used for cleaning purposes and heating of ingredients.

A choice for the Power Collector, which delivers most renewable energy per square meter, is therefore a very rational decision.

How it benefits

Power Collector generates more energy than 3 X conventional solar PV panels.

The Power Collectors are capable up to three times more of the available solar energy compared to conventional Solar PV
