New floating PV panels can generate up to 10 percent of U.S. electricity needs

(Natural News) In order to conserve land, researchers proposed an alternative location for space-intensive solar energy farms. They wanted to set up floating solar photovoltaic arrays on the surfaces of the thousands of artificial reservoirs that provide drinking water and hydroelectric power to the United States. A recent study conducted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) pointed…
