Solar Photovoltaic or generally known as Solar Power, is a green technology that allow the harvest of unlimited Sun Rays into Electricity power. It is the core of the Renewable Energy Movement around the globe. Many successful installation of Solar PV power stations around the world had mark its success.
The simplicity of solar power had made it easy to implement in small and large scale power generation project. The prerequisite of having a Solar PV farm is to have a space that have a good contact with sunlight, which including any open space from open desert, open field , on top of buildings and vehicles, with currently includes the Open body of water (river and sea).
Recently the Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg has thrown a proposal to the LONGi Group of China (first integrated photovoltaic manufacturing base in a single location producing Mono Crystalline silicon ingots, wafers, cells and modules) to explore the possibility of developing floating solar parks at dams and rivers in the state.
Electricity is the technology and sector that is too big to fail in this modern world as we are dependent on electricity to run most part of our cities utility, transportation, daily routines and personal gadget. Lets find out how floating solar farms can be the next alternative in our quest for greener energy.
