Ballarat Solar Park tracks down the sun for trapping the solar energy
Sharp and Origin have joined forces to create the ‘Ballarat Solar Park’ which is basically a huge park that will channelize the solar energy in an intelligent way. The Ballarat Solar Park includes tracking panels which are a unique innovation designed to follow the sun in order to capture the maximum amount of sunlight to generate more renewable energy than the standard solar fixed installations. The Park has a series of educational panels to help people visiting the area to learn about solar, renewable energy, how it works and its benefits. The park, which produces enough renewable energy to power about 150 homes, opened on Saturday November 28. In the past too, we have seen almost similar moves being taken where the entire parking lot generated power for its functioning from the sun- the Solasis Parking Lot.
