Solar Farms

Published: Monday, July 28, 2008 Spain is one of the leading countries in Europe when it comes to collecting solar energy. ‘Solar Farms’ are becoming a common sight, with hundreds of acres covered by PV arrays. The efficiency of these must be monitored. Our CMP series pyranometers fulfill the requirements of the IEC 60904 standard for PV testing. They are widely used for measuring and comparing all types of PV systems.

Kipp & Zonen sun trackers, pyrheliometers and pyranometers are installed in networks across Spain to ensure the precise and objective measurement of incoming solar radiation. The data is used for solar energy research and for ‘Sun Prospecting’ (the determination of optimal locations).
