Introduction to Floating Solar Panels Market

Floating solar plant or farm is an arrangement of photovoltaic solar panels on a structure that floats on a water body, which is generally a lake or reservoir.

Solar panels used in the construction of floating solar farms are known as floating solar panels. Floating solar is a new, cost-effective, and reliable renewable solution for utilizing idle water surfaces of reservoirs or lakes to produce renewable solar power.

Floating solar power plant systems typically generate more electricity than ground-mount and rooftop systems due to the cooling effect of the water.
