First and Largest Floating Solar PV Farm in the U.K.

First and Largest Floating Solar PV Farm in the U.K.

First floating solar pv farm in UK comes to life in Berkshire ( Solar Thermal Magazine)  – Normally solar panel farms raise concerns about tying up valuable farmland depending on the location that they are being proposed. But is there another way to generate solar power without tying up large tracts of land?

It turns out that the answer is yes. A French company, named Ciel et Terre has an interesting approach that involves floating solar arrays on reservoirs, quarry lakes, irrigation canals or remediation and tailing ponds.

In this time lapse video, their technology is installed at a solar array at a farm in Berkshire, England and I guess makes it the largest floating solar farm in the U.K.
