Solar power plants
New renewable energy source

The solar energy is a today highly accessible energy source that can be implanted close to residences, industries, building, or on a groud site designed just for that.  Also, the sun is FREE !! You just need to pay for the installation in implantation, then after all the energy you get is free of charge. Also, you contribute to make a more green environment, you reduce the other energy sources that produce Greenhouse gases, like Oil, Coal, Gaz, etc.


Many reasons to go with Solar power plants
Solar power plants have a big difference from conventional energy sources.
 
The difference is that the power plants get their energy input through concentrated solar radiation and then convert it to high-temperature steam or gas to drive a turbine or motor engine. This difference means that no pollutants are emitted in producing the electricity.
Solar power plants can supply an huge electricity demand.

Solar energy arrives on the earth at a maximum power density of about 1 kilowatt per square meter. However, solar "productivity" is limited by certain geographical factors, including cloud cover and atmospheric humidity. In sunny, arid locations, one square kilometer of land can generate as much as 100 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity per year using solar thermal technology, enough power for 50,000 households.
 

Solar power plants reduce air pollution.

…Or, in other words, each square meter of CSP concentrator surface is enough to reduce annual consumption of 200 to 300 kilograms (kg) of carbon dioxide. In addition, the "energy payback" time of CSP systems, taking into account the energy expended in their manufacture, is about five months, which compares well with their useful life of approximately 30 to 40 years. Most of the CSP solar field materials can be recycled.

Available when needed most - during peak demand hours.

In most developed countries, the peak demand period - during the hottest part of the day, when air conditioners are running in the office and home - coincides with the period of time when the solar thermal power plant is at peak production. In addition, solar thermal power, as predictable and reliable as the sun shining in the desert, is a renewable alternative to natural gas "peakers", as opposed to other forms of renewable energy, which are either baseload or intermittent.
 

Quick installation

Solar power plants can generally be built in their entirety within a few years and can follow demand more closely than most conventional power projects. This is primarily because solar plants are built almost entirely with modular, commodity materials and thus have short development and construction times. In contrast, many types of conventional power projects, especially coal and nuclear plants, require long lead times, and this causes significant disparities between the demand and the supply.

Solar installation looks big, but... they are space efficient

CSP plants seem to use a lot of land, but when looking at electricity output versus total size, they use less land than hydroelectric dams (including the size of the lake behind the dam) or coal plants (including the amount of land required for mining and excavation of the coal). While all power plants require land and have an environmental impact, the best locations for solar power plants are on land, such as deserts, for which there might be few other uses.
 
 
 

Solar energy applications
Pre-assembled kits

Mendax offers several solar energy kit, ready to install and to use. You can chosse a starter kit to expand it later, or a full system for cottage or home.

Water pumping

Solar water pumping are perfect for a wide range of applications. From home remote or village water supply, these are well suited and improved to meet your pumping water needs with solar energy.

Architectural

We can developp and configure you conceptual needs for architectural projects. It can be integratef in a more classical style or in can become an apparent part of a modern style project.

Agriculture

Farming, can be a very energyintensive industry. Fortunately, solar energy can supply and
supplement many farm energy requirements : Space and Water Heating, Greenhouse Heating, and Solar Electric (Photovoltaic) Systems.

Schools

Schools can take the leadin the new environmental way by implanting solar energy source to their infrastructures. It can also become a concrete choice and educational example for the children that will take place in the future in the society. Why not install a solar power plant on the roof that can become a science educational installation that students can see.

Industrial

Mendax can provide a solar energy sollution for an huge choice of industrial applications : Telecommunications, Instrumentation, Broadcast / News Gathering, Security Lighting, Surveillance,Remote Data Collection, Navigation, Seismic Monitoring, Railroad Signaling, etc.

Residential

Residential solar energy can be implanted on various ways. It can generate electricity directly from the using photovoltaic modules or a Water heating system that use the heated water to transform it in electrecity.

Recreational marine

Solar modules pay for themselves by extending battery life. Even if solar is not your main source of charging power, using solar will keep the batteries at a higher state of charge, which increases their life.

Towns and cities

The solar energy can provide additional energy sources for modern city installations, like parking meter, air exchanger, water pump, hot water in the buildings, air conditioning, traffic lights, etc. Today, all level of the administration have to contribute to more green life.

Saves you money
  • After the initial investment has been recovered, the energy from the sun is practically FREE. The recovery/ payback period for this investment can be very short depending on how much electricity your household uses.
     
  • Financial incentives are available form the government that will reduce your cost. If your system produce more energy than you use, your utility company can buy it from you, building up a credit on your account! This is called net metering.
     
  • It will save you money on your electricity bill if you have one at all. Solar energy does not require any fuel. It's not affected by the supply and demand of fuel and is therefore not subjected to the ever-increasing price of gasoline. The savings are immediate and for many years to come. The use of solar energy indirectly reduces health costs.
Environmentally friendly
  • Solar Energy is clean, renewable (unlike gas, oil and coal) and sustainable, helping to protect our environment. It does not pollute our air by releasing carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, sulphur dioxide or mercury into the atmosphere like many traditional forms of electrical generations does.
     
  • Therefore Solar Energy does not contribute to global warming, acid rain or smog. It actively contributes to the decrease of harmful green house gas emissions. It's generated where it is needed.
     
  • By not using any fuel, Solar Energy does not contribute to the cost and problems of the recovery and transportation of fuel or the storage of radioactive waste.
Low/ no maintenance
  • Solar Energy systems are virtually maintenance free and will last for decades. Once installed, there are no recurring costs.
     
  • They operate silently, have no moving parts, do not release offensive smells and do not require you to add any fuel. More solar panels can easily be added in the future when your family's needs grow.
