Presentation of the cleaning system Opal and cooling photovoltaic solar panels

Sycomoreen's Photovoltaic Barn is equipped with the fully automated OPALE system. OPALE is the alliance of Silicon and Water. Details will be given later.

This system improves the productivity (by improving the average yield) of integrated solar systems (or not) by reducing their average temperature. Indeed; a photovoltaic solar panel loses its performance with temperature, it is therefore interesting to keep it as “cold” as possible, at least to avoid overheating.
