The Triple Solar® system is a natural gas-free energy solution for all seasons, 24 hours a day. On this page we explain how the system works.
Operation of the PVT heat pump solar panel
The innovative Triple Solar heat pump panel generates electricity via the solar panel and also extracts heat from daylight, sunlight and outside air. While the electricity goes to the electricity grid, the heat is transferred to the heat pump. Thanks to the combination of three heat sources, the efficiency of the Triple Solar heat pump panel is high – higher than that of, for example, a solar water heater that only uses direct sunlight. It therefore also forms a stable source of energy in every season, 24 hours a day.
The heat pump panel is made of aluminum. Special fluid: glycol flows through pipes under the smooth-looking surface. This fluid absorbs the ambient heat from the three sources and conducts it to the heat pump.
Operation of the heat pump
The heat from the source, the Triple Solar heat pump panels, is of relatively low temperature. In the heat pump, the heat is converted into usable, higher heat for a home – think of heating and hot tap water. The heat pump, which runs on electricity, thus replaces the gas-fired boiler.
