Supreme Heating launches ground-breaking hybrid solar PV thermal panel

Supreme Heating launches ground-breaking hybrid solar PV thermal panel
January 30, 2018

Supreme Heating, one of Australia’s most trusted pool heating companies had announced the launch of its new two-in-one solar solution, the Heatseeker DualSun hybrid solar PV thermal panel.

To be launched at the SPASA Pool & Spa Expo + Outdoor Living at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre later this week, the European manufactured hybrid solar PV thermal panel has been cleverly designed to utilise the excess heat from the photovoltaic (PV) panels to provide electricity and thermal heating for commercial swimming pool venues.

Essentially, the panel simultaneously produces photovoltaic electricity for the building and heated water for the pool.

The electricity generated by the high efficiency monocrystalline cells can cover all the electricity needs of the swimming pool while any surplus electricity can be self-consumed in the commercial swimming pool facility, or returned to the grid for a feed-in tariff or net-metering program.

The patented ultra-thin heat exchanger is completely integrated into the panel. As the pool water flows through the heat exchanger, the water is heated while simultaneously cooling the panel. This results in a highly efficient transfer of heat between the photovoltaic surface and the water circulation on the underside. Traditional photovoltaic panels generate much more heat than electricity. The cooling effect on the DualSun panel allows the photovoltaic electrical generation to be maintained, and increases peak performance by up to 20%. A DualSun installation generating heated water and solar electricity produces up to four times more energy than a standard PV installation.

Supreme Heating Business Development Manager, Peter Alderton explains “we are very excited to bring the evolution of solar power to the swimming pool & spa industry here in Australia.

“The panels are designed for swimming pools and pre-heating hot water applications, which optimises production.”

Heatseeker DualSun provides a powerful solution for the swimming pool and spa industry, and more importantly commercial swimming pool venues.

The simultaneous generation of electricity and heated water allows the ongoing energy consumption of a pool to be neutralised, and avoid any government legislation that could negatively impact the industry.

Visit Supreme Heating on Stand J3 at the SPASA Pool & Spa Expo + Outdoor Living, being held from 2nd to 4th February 2018 to find out how to convert a facility into a zero energy pool, creating clean, reliable and 100% renewable energy.
