Nanjing City, China, 2020 -- Phono Solar, a global leading high-end photovoltaic products manufacturer announced that it has finished the intelligent upgrading for Nanjing based manufacturing plant, which will in future better adapt to market demand for 166mm wafer, Half-cut bifacial, MBB(Multi-Busbar) solar module and enhance compatibility for production of larger size wafer solar module afterwards.
Start from the beginning of 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 has given rise to big impact for solar industry from home and abroad and it may even last for a longer time frame. How to tackle the crisis and facilitate development is a big issue for every enterprise concerned. Tapping into the time frame, optimizing production and workmanship to meet upcoming market needs has proved by Phono Solar to be a satisfactory option.
By introducing automatic laser cutting and welding machine, automatic confluence welding system and double cavity double layer laminator, Phono Solar managed to accomplish the intelligent automation upgrading covering the whole manufacturing process, ranging from material sorting to solar module packaging. It helps to reduce manufacturing and labor costs and increase production efficiency on a large scale, which will supply competitive solar products. -With nearly 20% increase on production capacity, Phono Solar has remained its constant focus on product quality and technics, to ensure product performance at an industry leading position.
Current Generation is proud to be official distributors for BYD Lithium batteries
BYD launches Battery-Box Premium LVS with unparalleled ease of use and versatility for on- and off-grid installations The new model eliminates the need to open the system’s Power Distribution Unit (PDU) for wiring, which revolutionises the speed and ease of installation.
The Battery-Box Premium line is based on BYD’s lithium-iron phosphate (LFP) technology for maximum safety, life cycles and power. The new Battery-Box Premium LVS, is aimed at self-consumption optimization for residential and light commercial on and off-grid applications including capabilities for high-powered emergency-backup, single-phase and three-phase is scalable from 4 kWh to 256 kWh.
combined with Victron Energy products this creates a robust highly reliable grid tie battery back up or powerful off gird solutions
BYD is the world’s largest manufacturer of rechargeable batteries.
Those three letters stand for Build Your Dreams and apparently their dream was to build a battery box and sell it for storage in grid-tie solar systems because that’s exactly what they’re doing with their B-box battery systems.
There are 2 product lines – the High Voltage1 (HV) and Low Voltage (LV) B-Boxes, each in a variety of storage capacities.
The one most likely to be used for home energy storage is the B-Box LV Residential, which comes in 4 sizes. The smallest being the B-Box 2.5 with 2.45 kilowatt-hours of usable storage and the biggest, the B-Box 10 with 9.8 usable kilowatt-hours.
The B-Box batteries pack more power per kilowatt-hour of storage than almost any other system. BYD batteries are lithium iron phosphate, which is the safest lithium chemistry.
BYD has confirmed a retail price for the B-Box 10 - $9,950 including GST
BYD is huge
BYD is a massive Chinese company headquartered in Shenzhen, a city of 12 million immediately north of Hong Kong. Many people have not heard of BYD despite it being bigger than Tesla2.
BYD has around 220,000 employees and a market capitalization of about $22 billion.
BYD manufactures batteries, LED lights, solar panels, trains, and monorails.
They don’t just produce more batteries than Tesla3, they produce the most rechargeable batteries in the world.
What you need to know about small wind turbines
Solar panels produce DC electricity, so they need to be fed through an inverter to convert the power to AC electricity to be used in a grid-connected solar power system.
There are two main types of inverters:
Power Spout is made in New Zealand
The PowerSpout is one of the greatest little water turbines in the renewable energy sector because of its high power output and low purchase and maintainance cost.
One of these little units can power a modern house on the right site. Hydro energy sites in Nelson Tasman and thru out NZ
Even a small stream can generate consistent, clean, dam free, renewable electricity at a price per Watt lower than solar or wind.
The beauty of these is you can connect them in series to make large amounts of power if you have a good flow in your stream. They are ruggedly made to last a long time and weather resistant. The small (18 inches wide), ALL WEATHER PowerSpout is one of the most reliable, cost-effective generators around.
Years of research and development have gone into these water turbines to bring you cost effective power to your house.
Stand alone power systems (SAPS)
In situations where there is no connection to the electricity network an alternative power system is a viable option.
Sometimes connecting to the main grid network can cost as much $25,000 per kilometre, a stand alone power system can be an attractive economic alternative.
Backing up your stand alone power system
Because Off-Grid systems are obviously NOT connected to the electricity network, some form of back-up generation and energy storage is required.
We would advise an industrial diesel generator is an essential component for any alternative power system for when there is not enough sun/wind or water.
What's the return?.... One of the first questions that you ask when considering a grid-tie solar system.
Solar energy is a source that will supply electricity, long term, with NO continuous financial input, NO environmental impact & it is something that will not effect your lifestyle - it is an exciting investment!
It is possible to value an investment in grid-tie solar in a way that makes it comparable to other types of investments.
YOU CAN ACHIEVE COMPELLING INVESTMENT RETURNS RIGHT NOW!
A grid-tie solar system produces a return on a number of levels: the obvious is the immediate saving of reduced electricity bills. Then there is the capital value increase of your property and of course the cumulative effect of increased return with the inflation of energy costs.
Any extra power you make above what you use is bought back by your electricity provider at these rates, (rates are correct on 28th May 2015)
