Terra Pave Benefits to Solar Farms
1) Highly improved ground albedo for bifacial panels.
Terra Pave Top-seal Albedo product is engineered to fall into the range of 0.8 and above albedo. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory is currently testing Terra Pave Top-seal Albedo over a period of 6 months to provide long-range data for Terra Pave.
- Because Terra Pave will block vegetation growth where it is applied: possible savings in maintenance costs might result.
- Because Terra Pave might reduce Shading Loss: possible increase in power generation might result.
If the area you wish to pave is chronically muddy, the land needs to be drained or you need to bring in enough base material so that the Terra Pave application is situated above the formerly muddy area. Terra Pave engineers will tell you the exact kind of base material that needs to be delivered to the site.
