Abstract

In this contribution a possibility of electrochemical production of chlorine for water disinfection, by using photovoltaic panels from solar energy, is described. A simple way of chloride production by means of a photovoltaic panel, comparable with classical electrical power source was performed on an experimental device. By using photovoltaic panel with nominal output 50 W and solar irrigation 380 – 550 W/m2 chlorine production was 0.3 mg/min, which represents amount of chlorine sufficient for disinfections of approximately 4000 l water per day.
