29 Jan Introducing Heatseeker DualSun
Introducing Heatseeker DualSun – a revolutionary hybrid panel that simultaneously produces electricity and heating for swimming pools.
The electricity generated by the high efficiency monocrystalline cells can cover all the electricity needs of the swimming pool. Any surplus electricity can be self-consumed in the home or commercial swimming pool facility, or returned to the grid for a feed-in tariff or net-metering program.
The patented ultra-thin heat exchanger is completely integrated into the panel. As the pool water flows through the heat exchanger, the water is heated whilst simultaneously cooling the panel.
This results in a highly efficient transfer of heat between the photovoltaic (PV) surface and the water circulation on the underside. Traditional PV panels generate much more heat than electricity. The cooling effect on the DualSun panel allows the PV electrical generation to be maintained, and increases peak performance by up to 20%. A DualSun installation generating heated water and solar electricity produces up to four times more energy than a standard PV installation.
