Tyll Solar PVT solar panels combine an internationally patented heat collector with generic PV cells to create an integrated solar panel that increases electrical output with additional thermal energy.
Compared to PV alone, Tyll Solar PVT systems offer more:
A BETTER SYSTEM – About 80% of the sun’s energy is converted to usable heat or electricity, compared to only 15-22% efficiency with PV panels alone where the balance of solar radiant heat is lost. Tyll Solar PVT panels capture much of that wasted heat, converting it into usable energy by generating hot water.
5X MORE ENERGY – Tyll Solar PVT panels produce 553% MORE energy than traditional PV – generating both electricity and hot water – using an identical surface area, as tested by the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute. Download the case study here.
FOR EXAMPLE: A Single TYLL SOLAR 1,500 Watt Panel Generates:
MORE EFFICIENT PERFORMANCE – Higher electrical performance is achieved by cooling the PV layer (around 10% more annually / about 30% more during peak summer months).
LOWER COST / FASTER PAYBACK – Payback is about 5 years or less, with free energy thereafter for at least an additional 15 years (based on an anticipated life-expectancy of 20 years). Tyll PVT systems reduce fossil fuel consumption, protect against grid outages and price increases and eliminate interference to existing operations.
SMALLER FOOTPRINT – One Tyll PVT system provides most or all electricity needs plus the benefit of hot water / space heating. No need for two separate systems. Ideal for commercial buildings and industrial processes that utilize electricity and hot water year-round.
Our uniquely designed PVT Panel can be produced at a high volume by any PV manufacturer without additional equipment AND can be easily and less expensively installed with standard racking.
