Technology

Solar Panels

Lone Valley Solar Park consists of more than 121,000 photovoltaic solar panels mounted on a single-axis tracking system for a combined output of 30.34 MW. Photovoltaic solar cells have no moving parts and convert sunlight directly into electricity via the photoelectric effect. This direct-current electricity is then collected, transformed into alternating-current, and finally enters the electrical grid through a substation after being converted to the proper voltage.
