Five years to a positive energy yield
Not only is our system significantly cheaper than photovoltaic, it is also much more environmentally friendly. While we always think of solar energy as a green solution to our electricity needs, photovoltaic power is not really a truly eco-friendly technology. The production of a photovoltaic module is extremely energy-intensive, for example. In measurable numbers this means: It can take up to 5 years to recover the electricity needed to make a photovoltaic module. The comparison with our solar modules with bipolymers in the core shows that this can be done differently! For a bipolymer, it only takes a few weeks, due to the simple production, until the solar module of bipolymer has produced more energy than it has consumed in the production. So we can rightly claim that our bipolymer systems really deliver green electricity.
Cadmium, lead, fluoropolymers – problems with recycling
The view on the distant future also presents further problems with the photovoltaic modules. These modules are not permanently on our roofs and can be malfunction after a bunch of years. Where to go with these defective modules? No one knows, because the built-in parts of cadmium, lead and fluoropolymers are either not recycable or very difficult to recycle and also extremely harmful to the environment. Does that look like green electricity? In contrast, bipolymers are easy to recycle and are useful in many other applications (such as building homes).
