Lader Energy uses PV to produce potable water from humidity, investing $250,000

Chilean startup Lader Energy has commissioned the first solar project that is able to produce 10 thousand liters of water per month from the humidity in the air. The system is based on hydropanels, which combine solar PV energy with solar thermal energy. The hydropanels capture the humidity from the air and, after a condensation process, produce water. In the construction of the first plant, the company invested $250,000.
