Floating Solar Energy – Going beyond available land

Floating solar, or floating photovoltaic (FPV), simply refers to an array of solar modules floating upon a body of water. The solar panels are racked on a buoyant structure to keep them above the water’s surface and are usually located on relatively calmer bodies of water such as ponds, lakes and artificial dam reservoirs.

One of the several advantages of FPV is that it does not occupy the land, that could otherwise be used for agricultural or forestry purposes.
