Taixi Fishery PV #2

Floating solar panels on a fish pond

Homepage | Our projects | Taixi Fishery PV #2

It all began in 2016 when Cedric Jaeg, CEO of Laketricity Taiwan, joined a working group on the development of solar power plants applied to aquaculture. As a result of this consortium, in 2017 Laketricity Taiwan won a tender to supply the floating solution that would be used to test FPV on several fish farming ponds.

Initial test results were favorable. The Fishery Research Institute (FRI) has therefore been commissioned by the government to pursue the development of floating photovoltaics within fish farms, giving priority to the regions in cooperation with local authorities.
Floating solar power is a perfect response to Taiwan’s growing energy demand, as the country has a large number of fish-farming ponds compatible with this type of floating photovoltaic project.

Laketricity’s main challenge has been to consider fisheries activities in the development, limiting the pond coverage to 40% of the surface area. This is also the first project to include non-floating solar power, so as to optimize the site’s renewable energy production.
