Photovoltaic cells are used in solar power generating systems ranging from heavy industrial building mounted arrays to individual landscape lights. The largest United States market for optoelectronic photovoltaic cells centers around integrated construction roofing and window materials, followed by large project applications that use generators and battery powered storage. Solar technology photovoltaic cells power residential and municipal systems as well as remote, off-grid systems.
Industry terminology for photovoltaic cell arrays includes "off-grid domestic," which are arrays used to power houses and villages with no access to an electrical grid. "Off-grid commercial non-domestic," refers to arrays used for navigation, telecommunications, water generators and remote refrigeration of vaccines. "Grid-connected distributed," are arrays that supplement power to a business or residence that is connected to the local electrical grid, or that feed supplemental power directly into a grid. When buying photovoltaic cells, also known as pv cells, and cell systems, consider the following:
1. Base the purchase of photovoltaic cells that are integrated with building and construction materials on cost efficiency, durability and power output.
2. Look for medium-sized grid-connected or interactive pv cell systems that are appropriate for both commercial and consumer use.
3. Consider off-grid power systems for municipal and consumer use to tap the purchasing power of state and local governments who use solar energy to power rural and highway roadwork, and individual consumers without grid connections.
