In recent years, "photovoltaic agriculture" has gradually become a reality from a long-term perspective and has been put into operation in more and more regions of China. What is "photovoltaic agriculture"? As the name suggests, it is agriculture that involves the technology of transforming solar power to electricity in cultivation. Solar power can replace gas, diesel and so on, get rid of limitation of greenhouse location and reduce reliance on traditional energy. So it can decrease greenhouse operation cost directly.
On the other hand, photovoltaic greenhouse design and construction is still in the developing phase. Photovoltaic panels have to combine the function of greenhouse covering and power generation, and it has to guarantee uniform transmission of light to satisfy the needs of crops' light inquiry. Now, Kingpeng Corporation has developed several solutions for greenhouses to use photovoltaic technology:
- Adjust roof structure of greenhouse, especially the lighting angle of photovoltaic panels;
- According to the characteristics of solar radiation in different regions, give a reasonable arrangement of photovoltaic panels and glass;
- Provide different types of photovoltaic greenhouse for different crops.
There is still a long way to go with photovoltaic greenhouses in China, but at Kingpeng they are sure that the Chinese greenhouse industry will keep searching for ways to keep going forward against any wind and rain.
