RESIDENCE QUADRIVIUM in Castelnuovo del Garda: the advantages of the photovoltaic solar power system The photovoltaic system uses solar energy to produce electricity which can be used in shared spaces, for example for lighting in the stairwell and the external paths, the automatic gates, the heating system and the mechanical ventilation system.
The photovoltaic panels are placed on the roof of the building and angled appropriately.
The energy of the sun is collected by an inverter located in the basement, which turns the continuous current generated by the photovoltaic units into an alternating current suitable for the electricity grid.
The inverter sends the current through the building's wiring system to the lights in the shared spaces. When the building's energy requirements allow, any unused electricity is fed into the national grid, which gives a credit towards future consumption and considerable savings on the bill.
