The innovative and cost-effective SOEASY floating solar installation system enables the use of solar energy in inland waters, adding a lot of economic and environmental benefits that traditional ground and roof-mounted solar arrays cannot provide. The lower water surface temperature also greatly increases the efficiency of solar panels.

1.What is floating solar system?
Floating solar or floating photovoltaics (FPV), sometimes called floatovoltaics, is solar panels mounted on a structure that floats on a body of water, typically a reservoir or a lake. The market for this renewable energy technology has grown rapidly since 2016.
2.Why do solar farms float?
Where land is scarce, floating solar farms make it possible to generate renewable energy without taking up space that might be needed for farming or other purposes. The cooling effect of the water allows the floating solar cells to run more efficiently than on land.
3.Where are floating solar panels used?
Wineries, dairy farms, fish farms, mining companies, waste-water treatment plants, irrigation districts and water agencies are examples of organisations who can harness renewable energy, whilst benefiting from the synergy that our system creates between sun and water.
4.Can solar panels float?
Floating solar panels, also known as floating photovoltaic panels (FPV), use mounting that is designed specifically to rest on calm, stagnant bodies of water. Unlike traditional solar panel installations, FPV installations can be placed right on lakes or water reservoirs instead of affixed to roofs or ground mounts.
