Why solar panels are the thing?

With a fresh vision for the future, we aim to reaffirm the role of solar energy in the world industry.

  • Economy matters

    The cost to install solar has declined 75% or more in the last decade. Solar power — is one of the most high-developed and innovative niches among green technologies. The highest quality and product launches at affordable market prices are the top priority for all solar innovations.

  • Sustainable growth of enterprise

    Solar panels are able to uphold the high quality and environmental standards, at every stage of the value chain. This comes to the benefit of the business, customers and the environment.

  • Worldwide energy

    Solar power technology has improved, so that more of the sunlight is directly converted to power. This allows even a seasonal states to be a viable place for solar energy. So, it can be used in every corner of the globe.

  • Eco-friendl

    Solar energy is considered as a "clean" alternative to the traditional sources of energy, that pollute the environment. Solar power is 100% renewable end considered as harmless for the nature.

FAQ

What is utility-scale solar?

“Utility-scale solar,” “large-scale solar,” and “solar farms” are different terms that describe a solar power facility that generates enough electricity to serve many customers, as opposed to a single home or business.

How do solar panels and solar farms work?

Solar electric panels create electricity directly from sunlight. When sunlight hits the panels, semiconductors inside the panels are activated to produce usable electricity. In these farms, many solar panels are grouped together to produce more power. In most cases, panels are mounted on “single-axis tracking systems.” Solar panels are attached to horizontal poles that run north to south. The panels rotate from east to west to follow the sun. So, they get the maximum solar energy throughout the day.

Why is solar energy being pursued as a source of grid power?

The most important driver behind the growth of solar is the declining cost of solar power technology and installation. The cost of new large-scale solar generation has dropped to the point where it is cost-competitive today with traditional coal and natural gas power plants.

How much land is required for solar farms?

A good rule of thumb is five to seven acres of land are used for every megawatt of solar power capacity. A solar developer will seek to contract for additional land to provide more flexibility in laying out the arrays, routing interconnection corridors, and to meet state requirements for alternative seating options.

Is the conversion of agricultural land to solar generation permanent?

No. Modern large-scale solar installations use steel posts that are fixed into the ground without concrete pilings. The land can very easily be converted back to farmland after the life of the solar project. The average life of the project is 25-40 years. When the time of the project is up, the landowner is able to resume common agriculture activities.

Can solar panels withstand strong winds?

Testing of the solar panels proved that the panels can withstand winds of up to 140 miles-per-hour, the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane. In real-world performance, there are reports that nearly all solar panels located in areas hit by Superstorm Sandy (2012), Hurricane Michael (2016), and Irma (2017), survived the high winds.

Will there be a stray voltage from a solar farm?

No. The collection and transmission lines used in this modern solar farm effectively prevent stray voltage. These lines are significantly different than what might be seen in local distribution systems or low-voltage wiring in sheds, barns, and dairy facilities.

Will glare from the solar panels be a problem?

No, this is actually a common myth about solar PV modules. Solar modules are made to absorb sunlight, not to reflect it. Solar modules are flat and covered with smooth anti-reflective coatings. Modern PV modules reflect as little as two percent of incoming sunlight, about the same as water and less than soil or even wood shingles.

What happens if there is snow on the solar panels?

In larger solar farms, the panels rotate throughout the day. When they are tilted, snow will slide off on its own. If some part of the panels is covered in snow, the remaining portion can still generate power and, in doing so, will generate some heat that will encourage the melting of the rest of the snow.

How do solar panels produce power when it’s not sunny?

At night the solar panels go into standby mode and do not produce any energy. However, even on cloudy days the panels are producing power.

How many jobs will be created to construct an operate a solar farm?

As an example, a 300 MW project might create 500 new local jobs while in construction, and 5 operations and maintenance jobs once it is operational.

Do solar farms protect the wildlife in the area?

Solar PV projects by themselves do not damage wildlife. When native meadow ground cover is used, the project will create new habitat for pollinating insects and birds, as well as improve water quality for local aquatic species. Projects are provide fencing, which keeps wildlife out and reduces risk to animals in the area.
