INSTALL A SOLAR ARRAY ON MOST MAN-MADE BODIES OF WATER
Layfield’s Open Water Floating Solar lets you install a solar array on most man-made bodies of water. A series of special floats support solar modules on an island that is anchored on the water surface. Power is brought to shore using floating conduit and converted to AC power with an inverter on the shoreline. Floats and solar modules are assembled on the shore and floated out onto the surface of the water. The island has walkways between the solar modules for maintenance. Open Water Floating Solar can be more efficient than ground-mount systems as the water moderates the temperature of the solar modules. In addition, Layfield offers an optional evaporation control kit that reduces water loss. Layfield’s Open Water Solar System can be installed in new or existing ponds and can be deployed into a full pond. Layfield’s Open Water Floating Solar uses the Hydrelio® float system produced by Ciel et Terre.
