Abstract

This study is being made to see if combining a solar panel and a geothermal system make them more efficient. If I combine a solar panel and a geothermal system then these two systems will help each other to become more efficient. The geothermal system will be powered by the solar panel. There will be tubes behind the solar panel to collect its heat and transfer said heat to the geothermal system. It is possible to use the cooling part of the geothermal system to cool down the solar panel. Results have shown that these two systems work well together. The data that has been collected from the test shows that a geothermal system can be powered just fine using solar. In the future it is planned to maybe add other clean energy systems to this hybrid system. In conclusion, a geothermal heating/cooling system pairs nicely with a solar panel. And not just by powering the whole thing using solar, it is also possible to use the geothermal system to collect heat from the solar panel and use said heat.
