It’s cloudy, now what?

Solar panels can generate electricity on a cloudy day due to their ability to harness diffuse sunlight, albeit at a reduced efficiency compared to sunny conditions. Here's how it works:   Diffuse Light: Even on cloudy days, sunlight penetrates through the clouds...

Apples to Apples

A 12kwatt solar panel system is approximately 842 square feet. It’s best possible efficiency is 24% (current record). At most it will be affective for 25 years. The cost is about $20,000.00. A Biventions solar energy system is about 1/3 the size at 324 square feet....

Getting 82% efficiency

To determine the surface area of a solar panel that would correspond to 82% efficiency, we need to consider the efficiency formula:   Efficiency = Energy output / Energy input × 100% Assuming the energy input is proportional to the surface area (which is a...

Why Bivention Solar?

1. Low Failure Rate Make it the best. PV cells don’t fail very often but they do fail. When they fail they fail open, (electrical term). Measuring a failed PV cell from positive to negative or negative to positive will read infinite resistance and no power out. For...
