Imagine a huge water bed generating electricity. Yes, it is possible. Floating PV plants can be installed on water bodies of dams, reservoirs, canals etc. Floating panels have proved to be more efficient and energy generating compared to roof top and ground mounting panels. Due to the cooling effect beneath the panels the efficiency of solar panels has boosted up by 12.5%. Surprisingly, new research indicates meticulously designed floating solar farms could actually reduce the alarming warnings caused by climate change to lakes and reservoirs.
Australia’s largest floating solar farm – Lismore NSW
Did you know? Australia’s largest floating solar farm is in Lismore, New South Wales. It produces 1, 80,000 of electricity annually, using a 100KW solar system and it accounts for 12% of the plant’s energy needs. The project was also a part of the plan to tackle climate change. The Lismore council community is aiming at generating all its electricity through renewable sources by 2023. You can be a part of the revolution by employing the sun to generate electricity. Your roof can make you money. Speak to Solar Miner experts today to go green and generate free electricity.
Floating solar farm is an environmental solution
Installing solar panels out on unused water bodies reduces the need for tree removal and forest clearing. When you want to make large solar panel installations and save valuable land space, installations on water bodies is the solution. It is an environment friendly solution as it helps reduce greenhouse gases and also provides reliable energy performance due to cooling effect.
