Floating PV (FPV) offers a cost-effective renewable energy investment opportunity, particularly where land is scarce or unsuitable for ground-based solar. But these innovative power plants, while providing added benefits like decreased water evaporation, pose several unique challenges.
The SolarEdge Floating PV solution employs module-level power electronics (MLPE) so each panel generates the most electricity possible while reducing mismatch-related energy losses - even more impactful with bifacial panels. Your investment is further optimized with longer string lengths that lower installation costs. Maintenance is facilitated with automatic fault alerts that enable remote troubleshooting and reduce site visits. And SolarEdge components are resistant to ammonia corrosion while operating at high humidity levels and a wide temperature range.
Safety First with SolarEdge
The risk of generating electricity over water is mitigated with advanced safety features that meet stringent regulatory and insurance standards. When power is shut down for maintenance or in an emergency, SafeDC™ automatically reduces the high DC voltage to touch-safe levels. The system also identifies and prevents faults about to occur, which protects service personnel, equipment and surrounding wildlife.
