Solar Tracker & Thin-Film Combo Optimizes All Weather Solar Energy Yields
Crystalline panels and thin-film solar panels will be measured to see how they perform under a range of climatic conditions.
The two distinct solar energy solutions are part the new project between Denver-based Conergy Americas and officials at California's South San Joaquin Irrigation District (SSJID.)
Implications - The system, which debuted in late march, will save nearly half a million dollars for the irrigation district in utility costs, and will in fact make millions of dollars for the district in state cash incentives. Amidst the stat-wide water crisis, the project, which is in its second phase, will stabilize consumer costs.
