Renewable solar energy is clean electrical power produced by solar panels that convert some of the sun’s energy into electricity: this is renewable power that runs silently and doesn’t pollute during the operational phase.
A photovoltaic solar facility can be installed on all types of buildings – rooftops for new or converted industrial buildings, farm sheds, greenhouses, office buildings – or on the ground at human-affected sites (polluted industrial sites, landfills, quarries, areas near highways, etc.). CVE has recognized expertise in all of these types of photovoltaic facilities. The electricity they produce can be consumed on-site or fed into a power grid.
Because this is the easiest kind of renewable energy to develop, build, and operate, photovoltaic solar was the first to be launched by CVE. Now it has become one of the most competitive sources of power in the world, reaching grid parity in the past few years (meaning that fossil fuels and renewables are at the same production cost) in many countries, like Chile, California, the Emirates, Spain, and others.
