The most known and prevalent method to harness solar energy, photovoltaic panels provide a clean, versatile solution for energy supply. And this method to harness renewable energy is only becoming more and more popular, with one solar photovoltaic system being installed every four minutes in the U.S. Photovoltaic panels are made up solar cells, who have the ability to convert the sun light into electrical power. The energy harnessed by these photovoltaic panels can then be stored, converted, and be used as electricity. A photovoltaic system can be put into place, generally on rooftops in order to maximize solar exposure, and will allow you to convert the sun light into usable electricity and charge your electronic devices, appliances, to name a few. GTGlobe offers full solar photovoltaic systems equipped with well-designed, high quality products to ensure a well-functioning supply of renewable solar energy to your space.

Solar panels are composed of a collection silicon solar cells that are able to generate electricity by producing current when the photons (light particles) reach the surface of the silicon wafers. While a single solar cell can only generate 0.5V, these solar cells can be interconnected together and packaged to form a solar panel or module and produce more voltage for electricity supply. These panels can be installed on fixed supports or trackers, which are mobile systems to track the sun and to maximize exposure, therefore increasing electricity production by abut 30%.There exist many types of solar panels on the market. We offer polycrystalline solar panels, a more economical yet high performing type, with electricity production capacities ranging from 100W up to 320W for a single module or panel.
Charge controllers’s main function is to regulate the voltage or current going from the solar panels into the batteries, preventing the batteries from overcharging.
An inverter allows the conversion of low voltage direct current (DC) to high voltage alternating current (AC), and to modify the voltage to a safe range that is usable for appliances, which is 120V. It also has the ability to charge the battery when the system is connected to the grid or act as an alternating current (AC) generator for energy autonomous systems. We offer two types of inverters, modified sine wave and pure sine wave. Modified sine wave inverters are more economical and are able to produce voltage for most appliances, except for devices that require voltage/speed control and timing control. Pure sine wave inverters are higher in costs, but are able to produce high instant power, a voltage output similar to the grid and run all types of appliances.
The batteries allow you to store energy collected and converted by the solar panels. This energy can be used in periods with less sun exposure, such as during nighttime and on cloudy days. The batteries, along with the charge controllers, are able to store excess solar production that is completed during the day without overcharging. The energy store in the batteries can be used to provide backup electricity to your home, or to be sold to utility companies at a profit. We offer different types of high-quality solar batteries for different purposes, including lead-acid batteries and lithium batteries.
We offer AXITEC lithium-ions battery storage systems that are high-performing with a capacity of up to 6.8 kWh for residential, e-mobility, and commercial applications. Our AXITEC battery storage systems have flexible configuration and is suitable for all types of photovoltaic systems in all types of applications. Our German-manufactured AXITEC battery storage systems offer the perfect combination of performance, safety, and longevity.
