Solar Heating & Cooling Case Study - Bakersfield Hotel

Share

In California’s hot Central Valley, a hotel installed a hybrid photovoltaic and solar-thermal system, which involves 42 hybrid PV/Thermal collectors, and 18 additional PV-only panels. Each hybrid collector consists of a PV panel on the front and a solar-thermal collector affixed to the back. The PV panels get energy from direct  sunlight. The thermal collectors get heat from the PV panels and from the ambient air.
