Georgia will be home to largest solar PV project in the US to use bifacial modules and tracking

This week LONGi announced that it would be supplying modules to what it says is the largest “bifacial+tracker” power generation project in the United States. The 224-MW project will be built in Mitchell County, Georgia and is expected to be complete this year.

LONGi said that the combination of a flat uniaxial tracker with a bifacial module enables the front side of module to continuously track sunlight to realize a power generation gain of more than 15 percent at appropriate latitude and that the rear side of module is able to to make use of the high reflectivity of the desert environment to obtain a power generation gain of more than 10 percent.

In all, said LONGi, there is a power generation gain of more than 25 percent compared with the traditional monofacial module + fixed rack PV system.

Power generation equipment suppliers are one of the main attractions in the POWERGEN International exhibit hall.  The 2019 event will take place in New Orleans, November 19-21. Learn more about the event here.
