Fraunhofer Center for Solar Energy Technologies (CSET) will monitor the performance of the system, with four reference cells (2x POA 2x albedo) installed in a coplanar fashion for measuring both plane of array and albedo irradiation of the two aforementioned subsystems (tilted and flat).
15 of LONGi’s 60 cell mono-PERC bifacial (LR6-60BP-300M modules) have been installed. Around 1.5kW faces north with a tilt of around 33% with 3kW installed flat.
LONGi Solar’s bifacial modules have been installed on top of an innovative, modular timber tower in Chile.
The Peñuelas Experimental Tower was developed and delivered by the Wood Innovation Center of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile as a proof of concept for a quick and sustainable building method.
