Antarctica 2.0

Last year we posted an article of the Polar Foundation going to the Princess Elisabeth research base in Antarctica to install solar panels. In the past 2 years they have increased PV production by 52% to +/- 75kWp.

"The intention is to increase this even further and to use our surplus in the (near) future to charge electric vehicles and to produce hydrogen."

 

"For next season we are planning an additional plane of PV panels towards the east to catch the morning sun. 

These will be right up against a rock ledge"

To be continued.

On Wednesday 29/09, GPC got a nice 2nd place with the GPContol at the Innovation Award at the SolarSolutions Int. in Haarlemmermeer. In short, it helps you heat your boiler when the solar panels are producing energy.

 

The GPControl measures, via the P1 port on the digital meter, the energy injected into or taken from the grid. If there is a surplus of solar energy, an electric boiler is fed, controlled by the GPControl.
