GameChange Solar introduced the BifacialReflector, a patent-pending new technology that increases power generation for the GameChange Solar Genius Tracker with Bifacial modules.
The technology is a highly reflective (0.95 albedo), permanent solid surface up to 4 m wide that reflects light from just above the ground onto the back of the bifacial modules. According to GameChange, the technology is a significant improvement over other ideas as it is not a land cover that has a limited lifespan and requires constant maintenance.
“Solar power plant owners around the world have been asking for an affordable, long-lasting, maintenance-free, high-reflectivity (0.95 albedo) floor that can be placed under trackers with bifacial modules,” said Andrew Worden, CEO of GameChange Solar. “We are pleased to be able to offer the BifacialReflector solution. Our technology has a significant performance boost for bifacial modules and a 40 year lifespan with no maintenance, making it a major breakthrough for the industry. “
BifacialReflector is a self-cleaning long-term solution (40 years service life). The reflectors can increase the gain by up to 15-20% when using bifacial modules. This corresponds to an additional gain of approx. 5-8% compared to other bifacial trackers without BifacialReflector technology.
