The DualSun panel simultaneously produces solar electricity to run your swimming pool and heats the pool water for longer, more enjoyable swimming. As a ‘zero energy’ panel it doesn’t cost the environment or you run your pool. The electricity generated by the high efficiency photovoltaic (PV) cells covers all the electricity needs of your swimming pool. The surplus electricity can be used for a heat pump if required, domestic appliances or returned to the grid. The internal heat exchanger allows direct connection to your pool’s water circuit. As your pool water flows through the heat exchanger, the water is heated whilst simultaneously cooling the panel, increasing the efficiency of the PV electrical generation.
Heated water for your pool
A heat exchanger is integrated into the panel on the underside of the photovoltaic (PV) surface. As your pool water circulates through, it absorbs the surplus energy created by the sunlight and photovoltaic effect. As a result, the water is heated and returned to the pool whilst simultaneously cooling the panel. Keeping a solar panel cool increases its energy efficiency and keeps electrical generation at peak performance.
The conversion of light into electricity is known as the photovoltaic effect. Solar panels convert energy from sunlight into direct current (DC) electrical energy, which is then changed into alternating current (AC) for your home’s electrical consumption. Excess energy can be fed into a battery storage system for later use, or returned to the grid.
