Solar and wind power represent sources of unlimited renewable energy that do not discharge CO2, a major cause of global warming. In comparison to wind power, solar power is considered a quieter and more stable source of energy. In addition, solar power systems are free from the problems presented by the windmills used in wind farms, which are a hazard to migratory birds on their journey between Africa and Northern Europe. As a result, solar power is now considered one of the cleanest and most environmentally friendly forms of renewable energy, and its demand is expected to grow in the future.
OMRON supplies all of the components necessary for solar power systems, including solar conditioners, programmable logic controllers (PLC), a PLC-based communications interface, programmable terminals, power supplies and limit switches.
