With Energy Pergola, the benefits of life in the open air are reflected on the environment by generating sustainable and renewable spaces.
A single product combines the comfort and shelter provided by bioclimatic pergolas with the possibility of using sunlight as a source of energy production, thanks to the photovoltaic modules that are the fulcrum of this technological innovation.
THE ADVANTAGES OF THE PHOTOVOLTAIC BIOCLIMATIC PERGOLA
Energy Pergola is the first ever bioclimatic pergola with an integrated photovoltaic system in the blades.
The bioclimatic roofing solutions give the opportunity to regulate the microclimate of the underlying environment by creating natural ventilation. The aluminum blades that make up the cover are moved by a motorized system and they can rotate from the horizontal closing position, which guarantees optimal sealing in case of rain, to the opening position, according to an angle varying from 0° to 120°.
Energy production of photovoltaic modules is better when they are hit by an incident light orthogonal to the surface of the module itself and in the absence of shading. The possibility of freely orienting the sunscreen blades is a perfect aid for a better orientation of the photovoltaic modules with respect to the sun's rays.
ELECTRIC INSTALLATION IN A HOUSE*
Energy exchange on the place
It provides the connection to the electricity grid. The electricity production of Energy Pergola is able to partially or totally cover the user's energy needs. Any excess energy is transferred to the electricity grid in an interexchange ratio.
It does not need any connection to the electrical grid.
The Energy Pergola’s production of electricity is accumulated in special batteries, able to compensate the energy needs of the users if there is no adequate power supply and/or insufficient irradiation.
With the hybrid system, the Energy Pergola is able to generate energy for itself and for the house, accumulate it in the battery and/or transfer the energy excess to the electricity grid.
*Gibus is responsible for marketing the bioclimatic pergola and the integrated photovoltaic panel system. Other facilities, such as an electrical connection, inverter, storage system and all system accessories, are the customer’s responsibility and must be managed by a qualified photovoltaic technician.
