Solar power plants can enable a shift away from polluting alternatives such as diesel-based generation, especially in isolated, snowbound areas where the opportunity cost of land is relatively low. Technical solutions to the challenges of difficult terrain and climatic conditions include bifacial modules and so-called passivated emitter and rear cell technology— all with fixed mounting […]
