Learning to Float
Solar Farms on Water Are Making a Splash
Project teams are taking solar on a virtual boat ride, creating floating farms that gain maximum exposure to the sun. In India, plans are underway for the government to set up a 1,000-megawatt floating solar park at the Indira Sagar Dam in Madhya Pradesh, India. Once built, it will dwarf the current largest array (a 150-megawatt project in Anhui, China) and nearly double the entire global floating photovoltaic (FPV) capacity in 2018.
