Hybridization of solar PV and geothermal.

Both geothermal power and solar Photovoltaics (PV) are renewable sources of energy, although geothermal unlike solar and wind energy is not intermittent and hence can be used as a base load power just like other conventional sources of energy powers like large hydro or diesel power generators. Geothermal energy is a type of renewable energy which is generated within the earth and can be used directly for heating or transformed…

What is a solar photovoltaic system?

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) is a technology that works well to provide solar electricity suitable for running most of your electrical needs such as air conditioning, lighting, refrigeration, water pumping, etc. However, when it comes to thermal or heating needs, solar PV is not well suited.  Solar PV can provide thermal energy, but it will require many solar panels than usual making it expensive. For cost-effectiveness purposes, solar electricity (PV) is…
