Solutions for rooftop systems Make a profit on your roof

Large, slightly slanted roof surfaces provide ideal conditions for the profitable deployment of photovoltaic systems. As a result of declining panel prices and increasing energy costs, photovoltaic systems on private, commercial, and public buildings are becoming increasingly attractive, even without government subsidies.

To monitor the installations and provide permanent protection against all manner of lightning currents and surge voltages, Phoenix Contact offers a wide range of products for photovoltaic rooftop systems. For maximum safety during maintenance or in the event of danger, individual panels can be de-energized.

Solutions for hybrid energy systems For challenging conditions

Around 1.2 billion people worldwide have no access to electricity. As a result, diesel generators are used in many locations to produce the necessary, independent source of energy. However, the price of the fuel for diesel generators is constantly rising. The use of hybrid photovoltaic systems not only reduces the financial burden, it also sustainably lowers carbon emissions. In rural regions without a local power grid and in developing and emerging countries, hybrid photovoltaic systems are a cost-efficient and environmentally friendly alternative for generating electricity. The power generation units, accumulator, and inverter and the devices required for control and regulation must also be able to withstand the harsh ambient conditions. The solutions and components from Phoenix Contact optimally meet these requirements.
