Solar Power Project Solutions
As little as one-seventh of an ounce of dust on a square yard of solar panel can decrease energy absorption by as much as 40 percent. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates that energy loss due to accumulated dust can be as high as 25 percent; other experts, individual solar power dealers, in particular, estimate that energy loss can go as high as 30 percent” Taken from the article “The Dirt on Solar Panels” posted by Achelle Santos on November 2, 2012, on the begreen.botw.org website.
When it comes to solar power plants, the effectiveness is based on the performance of the Solar panels. In order for the Solar panels to perform they need to be free from dust -making Dust Control a critical part of the maintenance costs of any Solar project.
Wind Power Project Solutions
Wind Turbine Energy is developing at a rapid rate in the clean and renewable energy field in a World plagued by energy crises where increasing carbon footprints and fossil fuel costs make it a desirable alternative. One of the most critical challenges faced in a wind turbine project is the degradation of the performance due to accumulated dust on the turbine rotors which causes changes in the aerodynamic properties of the airfoils resulting in energy losses. Dust is normally prevalent where there is wind and this will expose wind turbine airfoils to the above-mentioned degradation leading to a loss of performance, increased maintenance costs, and decreased longevity.
Soil & Dust Solutions provides Value Engineered Solutions®, which incorporate the latest technologies and when utilized during the construction and operation of Wind Turbine Farms will address the problems associated with dust generation and accumulation ensuring proper and efficient turbine operation.
