Rethinking solar energy systems for flat roofs
Even though PV-technology have has had huge improvements for several decades the fundamental approach to solar energy systems has not changed much.
Whereas we have seen substantial improvements in performance, lifespan, and reduction in cost of PV modules, the mounting structure or approach to installation is more or less the same, even though all processes have been continuously optimized and streamlined through the last decades.
The introduction and availability to cost effective bifacial PV modules has given us the opportunity to rethink our approach to solar energy systems completely.
Over Easy Solar has challenged the existing approach by combining vertically mounted PV-panels and the mounting structure into a single unit. This gives several benefits compared to the conventional east west setup. Replace peak production at the middle of the day, with a system that has two production peaks through the day. Get your primary energy production in the morning and evening when you need it the most.
24 hours of solar power! Imagine if a solar power installation could produce electricity 24/7! This week at our research installation in Tromsø, Norway we had 24 hours of continuous production, taking advantage of the midnight sun! At one of Posten Norway’s distribution centers, we have commissioned a research installation with 14 Over Easy’s patent…Keep reading
Now you can retrofit your green roof with a solar energy system With more and more cities around the world changing the building code and regulation to better adapt to the climate conditions. The cities must combine green roofs, systems for delaying water and energy production to conform to the new expectations. Currently you must…Keep reading
