Photovoltaic (PV) systems derive energy from incoming solar radiation that is dependent on time, quality of sunlight, and the mounted pitch. PV arrays can exists as facade systems and roofing systems. Facade systems include curtain wall products, spandrel panels, and glazings. Roofing systems include tiles, shingles, standing seam products, and skylights with option for fixed-tilt (non-adjustable) or sun-tracking (adjustable). PV systems can also exist on a premises off of the building envelope such as on the ground, awnings or carports. Types of applications include thin-film or PV modules. This DC power can be used, stored in a battery system, or transformed into AC electricity.
