Solar Systems & Wind Energy
Solar energy refers to the usage of energy from the sun. Depending upon the manner in which they capture and convert solar energy rays, solar technologies can be classified as either passive or active. Active solar techniques usually use photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to directly harness the energy, while more passive techniques typically orient a particular building to the sun, while selecting materials with favourable thermal mass or light-dispersing properties.
At Pro-Sol Propane & Solar Systems, we provide services for solar system installation in Sudbury. Solar energy can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including but not limited to: cooking, heating, disinfection, lighting and distillation processes. It has been shown to improve physical and mental health when used as a form of natural lighting.
Wind power can be successfully converted into a useful form of wind energy in various ways. Wind turbines are often used to make electricity, while windmills have long been used for mechanical power. Wind pumps are traditionally used for water pumping or drainage, while sails have been harnessing wind power to propel ships for centuries. Some of the most popular applications of our solar and wind solutions include:
Water heating systems for garages or sheds
Domestic heating and hot-water heating for hotels, apartments and condos
Heating – radiator or floor heating
Heating commercial and warehouse buildings
Heating swimming pools, hot tubs, etc.
Off-grid heating applications
