Greenyellow Thailand commissions first floating PV project in the country

Greenyellow Thailand, a subsidiary of the French solar company Greenyellow, has commissioned Thailand’s first 2 MW floating solar power plant. …

The plant will produce 2.8 GWh of low carbon electricity per year, covering up to 20 per cent of the annual energy consumption of the site. A total of 6,000 solar panels are used for developing the project. According to Greenyellow, as the price of solar electricity sold to SPM is significantly lower than that of the electricity grid, this project will allow the group to achieve significant savings on its monthly electricity bill. Thailand aims to develop its capacity for floating PV installations, particularly on dams. According to Bloomberg, the country plans to install nearly 2.7 GW of solar capacity on nine dams by 2037.
