U.S. photovoltaic mounting and tracking systems manufacturer Game Change Solar LLC has announced and filed a patent application for a »Bifacial Reflector.« According to the company, the technology is expected to »dramatically increase« electricity production with its »Genius Tracker« using bifacial modules.
It involves a highly reflective, four-meter-wide surface that reflects light from just above the ground to the back of the tracked bifacial modules. »The reflectors can boost the gain by up to an estimated total of 15 to 20 percent when using bifacial modules, which is approximately 5 to 8 percent extra gain versus other bifacial trackers which do not have Bifacial Reflector technology,« the manufacturer said. The product is self-cleaning and requires no regular maintenance. The technical lifetime is said to be 40 years.
