Most current Photo Voltaic solar systems are typically designed for land-based applications and require large tracts of land which could otherwise be used for agriculture, housing or industrial construction. There are a few water surface based systems which have been developed, however these are still costly when compared to standard land-based systems.

The breakthrough Solaris Synergy system has a unique design concept, based on individually floating modules contained within a light-weight tension based,floating grid. This design offers several advantages over competitive solutions:

  • The use of a unique design, many standard off-the-shelf elements forconstruction and inexpensive materials leads to lower Total Cost of Ownership.
  • Use of standard PV modules ensuring low cost and high reliability over a time.
  • A unique, patented design provides self-regulation of panel angle under varying wind loads, allowing the installation of the system in regions of very high wind speed, even up to hurricane levels!
  • The system is agnostic as to water depth and unaffected by changes in water level.
  • The structure has a very low physical profile providing a minimal visual impact – a key environmental consideration.
  • The construction materials are all environmentally friendly and safe for use in the water and there is no leaching of any chemicals into the water.
  • Modularity of construction makes the system easily scalable and cost effective over a large range of installations providing flexibility and speed of deployment.
  • The open structure of the system ensures adequate aeration of the water as well as natural light penetration and presents no hazard to underwater life.
