Ministry of Solar’s floating solar panel structure transforms the surface of drinking water reservoirs, lakes, dams and ponds into useful and productive spaces. Moreover, the structure allows wind to pass freely under the panels, cooling the panels and cabling naturally, resulting in higher efficiency. The 1,000 kWp floating installation produces 1,041 MWh annually, of which 943 MWh is used immediately at the quarry Les Petons. During weekends, when the quarry is closed, the electricity is sold to the grid.
