Who are HelioSphera?
HelioSphera are a European company who make solar PV cells using micromorph thin film which is extremely reliable. They produce world leading solar panels by using advanced technology which they share with other technology institutions throughout Europe. This makes their products very long lasting and extremely efficient. They make their panels in a purpose built, modern factory in Greece to the highest of standards, which is the largest one of its kind in Europe. They also have shareholders in America and a sales office located in Germany.
What makes their panels different?
The advanced design technology that is used to make HelioSphera panels, means that they give a higher amount of electricity in cloudy conditions than other panels. This means that they are able to be used where standard panels are not suitable. Because their panels use far less silicon than normal solar panels any shortage of materials worldwide does not affect them to a great degree. This also means that they can be used in areas that are partly shaded or in countries with very high temperatures meaning they are reliable in any area regardless of the weather conditions. This makes them a good, solid investment. HelioSphera's special technology uses a third of the silicon material used in normal solar panels making them more eco-friendly. The special silicon is painted on to the glass on the panels meaning that the price of production is reduced as there is no need to cut up normal silicon blocks.
What other benefits are there?
The technology used to make these panels comes from Switzerland meaning that the panels give a good energy return on the money spent to install them. They are also low maintenance because they are frameless and therefore do not collect dust and dirt which can reduce the effectiveness of the panels. HelioSphera's solar panels are made using an efficient production system and non-toxic materials adding even more to their eco-friendly credentials than normal solar panels have. HelioSphera panels are so long lasting and reliable that they come with a guarantee for twenty five years of trouble free electricity output.
Where these panels are used
Until 2010 HelioSphera panels had been used mainly on small projects but a new project is now being run in Germany to provide sufficient power to run an entire solar plant. This plant is the largest one in the world, run completely using micromorph technology.
