What are the advantages of floating PV in the summer? ☀🌊

Floating PV offers two decisive advantages in the hot months of the year:

🔴 The PV modules on the water surface reduce the water evaporation effect. By maintaining the minimum oxygen concentration, they prevent the "tipping" of water bodies.

🔴 The modules themselves benefit from the cooling effect of the water, because solar modules can lose efficiency at very high outdoor temperatures. On the water, however, the modules remain constantly cooled. The efficiency increases.

A real win-win effect!
