High-altitude Floating Solar Panels

A floating structure - the installation consists of 2,240 square meters of solar panels, arranged in five rows of eight over all but one of the 36 floats. The floats are made of polyethylene and the frame supporting the solar panels is aluminium.

These solar panels provide energy for 220 average households each year. After the two-year trial period, taking the feasibility of the project into consideration, the park will expand its scale and supply to about 6,100 households.
