Solar Photo Voltaic Systems when integrated in buildings serve many functions:-
1. Generates Electricity.
2. Serves as building envelope, waterproofing, insulation, shading, solar thermal collection.
The PV modules could in a creative, aesthetically-pleasing manner be integrated into the building also known as Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV).This could be on any part of the roof or external walls that is well-exposed to sunlight. It could also be integrated into external structures such as canopies, Parking Shed, railings and also for shading area.Moreover, Solar pumps are in increasing demand.
Following advantages for a Solar Photo Voltaic Systems for building:-
