DualSun’s SPRING® module, the first hybrid solar PV panel in the world to obtain the “hybrid solar” Solar Keymark certification in 2013, is ideal for projects with a dual self-consumption system that generates hot water and electricity. It can resist the projection of hailstones up to 40mm in diameter, winds of up to 130km/h, 6 meters of snowfall, extreme temperatures anywhere between -40ᵒF and 185ᵒF, and extreme humidity.
SPRING® has a patented heat exchanger consisting of (165) 5-mm ducts that allow water to circulate inside the panel and optimize heat transfer in the photovoltaic cells. The front side is a monocrystalline panel with a sleek, full-black finish, and the rear side provides both cooling to the panel and the reuse of waste heat (in the form of hot water) generated by the heat exchanger. The modules are prefabricated with quick fittings for all piping and wires.
Suntuity Home’s first NetZero structure has included the installation of (90) 315-watt SPRING® hybrid panels to complete a 28.35 kW solar power system, with 38,250 kWh of energy production projected within the first year of activation.
