The new photovoltaic panel converts sunlight into electricity and reduces greenhouse operating costs.
How to use solar energy effectively and reduce the cost of electricity required for greenhouse operations? Mirai Solar's new device, Mirai Screen, an alternative to shade screens for greenhouses, is the answer to this question. The folding screen based on photoelectronic technologies generates the necessary shade for greenhouse plants.
At the same time, through the panels installed on its surface, it converts sunlight into electricity. The new device is being tested in several large greenhouses in Saudi Arabia. As the pilot study showed, the screen can generate 90% of the electricity required for a medium-tech greenhouse, significantly reducing the need to use non-renewable energy sources and saving the costs of operating the greenhouse.
