Solar modules are fixed to ropes (upper edge of the module) and thin-walled pipes (lower edge of the module, Rope-in-Pipe system).
To optimize the sunlight transparency, rainfall homogeneity, snow load and wind resistance we suggest the use of:
- cylindrical solar panels and/or/combined with
- narrow plane panels rotatable around a longitudinal axis.
Narrow rotatable modules optimize the Solar Sharing in two ways:
- solar tracking with falling of sun's rays perpendicular to the panels
- full solar output outside the crop growing season, no snow in winter
