Electricity generation is one of the most significant advantages of floating PV solar. 1 MW of PV solar may be affixed to approximately 2.5 surface acres of water in terms of density. Because they are anchored in the centre of a lake or reservoir, floating solar systems are designed with additional floats between the solar panels and are often not impacted by shading.
Because the Floating PV Solar Systems are mounted above water, the airflow and heat transfer from the panels to the water lowers the ambient temperature of the floating PV panels. This cooling effect boosts the Floating PV Solar System's power generation by 5-10% while also increasing the PV panels' lifespan.
The main advantage of floating PV plants is that they do not take up any land, except for the limited surface necessary for electric cabinet and grid connections. Also, they provide an excellent way to avoid land consumption.
