Are engineers installing floating solar farms? Absolutely.
In fact, there are already several floating solar farms in operation. In March, the largest floating solar farm in the world will be completed in the UK. This 23,000 solar panel project will generate enough power to run local water treatment plants.
Why do engineers put solar panels on water? The answer is that the panels can occupy unused space on top of the water rather than take up valuable land. In general, it is more economical to build solar farms on land than in the water. Installing a solar farm on water is a great option for areas that do not have much unused land.
