This is an interesting use of existing technologies combined to build a viable solution.

Echo Captures More Untapped Solar Energy

Contributed by | EchoFirst


As costs for energy continue to rise, installing a solar energy system could be one of the most important upgrades a home owner can make. If you are thinking of solar as a way of taking control of your energy costs, a more efficient option to consider is Echo (www.echofirst.com), a revolutionary new solar energy system that delivers twice the energy of a basic solar electric (PV) system.

 

 
According to EchoFirst, the creator of Echo, their system is more efficient than a basic solar system that captures just 15% of the sun’s energy and only generates electricity. Echo captures 50% of the sun’s energy by harnessing the solar electric PV panels to generate not only electricity but also thermal energy for home cooling, home heating and water heating.

 


Check out this video that explains how Echo works:
 
 
 
Echo helps create a healthier home environment by replacing stale, indoor air with fresh, filtered, outside air 6-8 times a day. In addition, Echo includes a state of the art, monitoring system (see image below), and one of a kind iPhone ‘remote control’ that lets customers control their home thermostat from anywhere in the world.
 

 
Many people feel that solar energy is the way of the future. To learn more about how Echo gets you to the future faster, please visit www.echofirst.com.

Joyce Dayton Corp - Solar Tracking Drive Solutions

Joyce Solar Actuators are designed to precisely position smaller solar tracking equipment. Their robust and efficient DC motor (24V or 36V) keeps power consumption to a minimum. Travel speeds remain nearly constant regardless of the load. Ideal for rugged environments common to the solar industry, these cost-effective SA actuators have an IP65 protection rating. Self-locking features in the mechanism ensure that the solar actuator will hold position throughout the daily tracking cycle. Specifications: • Double clevis mounting for easy installation • Clutch for overload protection • Adjustable limit switches for flexible travel settings • Reed sensor digital feedback for accurate positioning • Duty cycle is 25% (4 min. running, 12 min. rest) • Lubricated for life
