STAT FAQs Part 1: Floating Solar

The energy output of a floating solar installation will depend on the solar radiation at the location where the PV system is installed. Sites with a higher solar resource potential will have an increased energy output for each installed watt. NREL has developed tools that use localized weather data, along with other default and user-defined inputs, to estimate energy output of solar technology. These tools include PVWatts , an online solar energy production and cost of energy calculator, and the System Advisor Model (SAM) , a free tool available for download with increased functionality compared to PVWatts. To adapt the standard photovoltaic performance model in these tools to a floating solar specific model, the primary input change is to set the tilt to 11 degrees. NREL research has shown that this is the typical mounting angle for floating solar systems.[1] Performing t...
