Ciel et Terre Launches 72 Cell Solar Floats at Intersolar North America


Floating PV pioneer Ciel et Terre showcased its patented technology Hydrelio and launched 72 Cell Solar Floats at Intersolar North America.

Launched in 2011 Hydrelio is a platform that allows standard solar PV panels to be installed on large man-made bodies of water such as industrial reservoirs, dams or irrigation ponds.

Ciel et Terre is continuously making strides to position their patented technology as one of the most beneficial sources of renewable energy.

The Hydrelio system manufactured in Atlanta, GA can now accommodate installations up to 60 cell and 72 cell modules.

Recently, Ciel et Terre created two pilot programs in the US. The organization developed partnership with The University of Central Florida and installed a 5KW floating PV system on the campus’s retention pond. The second pilot program is located in Sonoma, CA at the Kunde Family Winery.

The company’s floating system conserves the reservoirs’ water by reducing evaporation and limiting algae growth. The solar panels operate more efficiently and produce more energy due to the natural cooling effect emitted through the water.
