Cambridge University Reveal Solar Breakthrough

According to scientists from Cambridge University new solar cells could increase the maximum efficiency of solar panels by up to 25%.

According to scientists from Cambridge University new solar cells could increase the maximum efficiency of solar panels by up to 25%.


Scientists from the Cavendish Laboratory in the University's Department of Physics have developed a new type of solar cell which will harvest energy from the sun much more efficiently than the current ones.

It is said that the research which was published today (8th Feb. 2012) could dramatically improve the amount of useful energy which is created by solar panels. They work by absorbing energy particles from light which are called proton which then generate electrons which in turn creates electricity.

The fact that there's an inability to extract the full amount of energy from all of the different colours of light at once means that your traditional' solar cells, found in solar pv panels are incapable of converting more than 34% of the available sunlight into electrical power.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
