Why the integration of a PIDbox extends the lifetime of your PV systemIlumen
The PIDbox of iLumen increases the efficiency of your PV plant. In addition, this patented device also extends the life of your installation.
Independent research by Thomas More College, KU Leuven Association, shows that the PIDbox increases the efficiency of your PV plant by 7.5% on average.
Characteristic for PV installations is that they will underperform as a result of Potential Induced Degradation or PID. PID occurs on all photovoltaic modules, often without the owner of the installation being aware of it, and implies accelerated efficiency losses.
By installing the PIDbox, the efficiency losses are regenerated (regenerative function) and further losses are prevented in the future (preventive function).
This allows you to realize savings on your electricity bill every year. PV owners who are entitled to the Flemish green energy certificates also gain an advantage by acquiring additional certificates.
Lifespan extension = profit
An average PV installation has a lifespan of 20 to 25 years. Without a PIDbox, you run the risk that your solar modules will soon have to deal with significant efficiency losses, so your annual revenues will shrink more and more. Or in other words: the lifetime of your of your installation is ending faster than necessary.
Thanks to the integration of a PIDbox, you can extend the life of your installation, as it not only restores the existing efficiency losses, but will also prevent from further losses in the future.
Every additional year that you can enjoy your PV modules, means another year of savings on your electricity bill. Which is of course pure profit for your wallet.
