maintenance of the green areas
A MAINTANED GRASS KEEP THE PLANT EFFICIENCY HIGH
A maintained grass allows for a lower module temperature, especially during the summer time. This, in turn, increase the productivity.
Moreover, photovoltaic plants severely suffer from weeds that, when are tall, obstruct the modules and decrease their efficiency up to 15%.
Moreover, if green areas are not well maintained, critical issues usually arise, such as the entangling of the vegetation with the mounting structures and modules. Therefore, a schedule of regular grass cuts and weeds removal is mandatory.
The maintenance of the vegetation is performed by SOLAND with the support of specif machining. At the same time, SOLAND staff performs a visual check of the modules and correct any possible issue that is found.
From our experience we believe that a proper maintenance requires 4 grass cuts per year. However, in the case of very rainy years, or in particularly humid locations, additional cuts are suggested (usually 1-2 per year).
