Large expanses of water, such as lakes, dams, farm dams and ponds are ideal spots for locating solar panels. These locations bask in sunshine as they are unimpeded by natural or man-made shading structures.
In many cases covering these water bodies aids in reducing water loss due to evaporation and frees up usable land area.
The cooler conditions that exist just above the water surface aids in keeping the PV panels cooler and hence facilitating a slight increase in power output.
Each installation is made up by joining together pontoons. Each pontoon houses ten PV panels.
The panels are typically 250 W, 280 W or 300 W.
The panels are mounted on either fixed angle or adjustable angle frames.
We offer options of either manually adjustment of the angle or automated "sun tracking" adjustment.
We also offer automatic sun azimuth tracking.
