PV agriculture is new-type agriculture where solar power is widely used in the fields of modern agricultural planting, breeding, irrigation, pest control and agricultural machinery power supply. PV agriculture is in line with the requirements of the biological chain and the energy system of the biological raw materials for production. It follows the law of agricultural production, using innovative materials and energy conversion technologies to achieve the purposes of intelligent light compensation, water replenishment and temperature control, while agricultural output is safer, more nutritious and more prolific. Regarding agricultural greenhouses, Hanergy's thin-film power generation panels can be penetrated by red and infrared light with even light transmission, having no unfavorable influence on crops in the greenhouses. The panels' weight is equivalent to the general agricultural greenhouse cover material, with the perfect combination of greenhouse and insulation shade, while increasing power generation income. Hanergy's thin-film power generation panels are the fourth generation of agricultural equipment material after glass, PC solar panels and plastic film, which will bring about a brand-new industrial revolution for agricultural greenhouse facilities.
Under Hanergy thin-film solar panels, both the light absorption curve and the CO2 absorption curve of chlorophylls a and b in photosynthesis with different wavelengths are similar to their respective absorption spectrum average. Thus the panels do not stunt crop plant growth.
Laminated safe glass, less than 5 mm in thickness
No weakening in light transmittance in 20 years
Power generation unaffected under high temperature and high humidity
Even transmittance of red and orange light and high transmittance of red light and infrared light
does not stunt crop growth
and ensures the needs of most commercial crops
Blocks UV rays and reduces disease
Lower water evaporation and reduces irrigation water
Lower evaporation on soil surfaces
Reduces solar protection devices
Blocks out projection of blue, green and yellow light,
and disturbs the growing environment of pests, achieving a physical insect-resistant effect.
