Should We Put Solar Panels on Water?
Explore the frontier of renewable energy with floating solar farms, an innovative concept following the success of offshore wind farms. Companies like Ocean Sun and HelioRec are pioneering this field, developing solar panels reinforced with platforms that float on water. Inspired by nature, Ocean Sun’s design mimics giant water lilies, with the system able to withstand wind speeds up to 300 km/h and produce 6.6 kWh. HelioRec’s 25 kW system has even proven its resilience through two storms.
