Energy delivered at Madison, Wisconsin
with 120 Wp PV Panels
RETScreen PV calculations by Productive Energy Solutions LLC with 120Wp PV modules (10ft2/0.93m2 each, 12.9% PV module eff., 90% inverter eff., and 5% power conditioning losses, on-grid).
PVO-Pergolas with 4 PV panels per row can be arranged in 2 row (8-panel) to 8 row (32-panel) plans with tilt angle and row spacing options. Stationary low tilt PV rows receive less wind loads with more snow loads and snow cover. The 1-axis tracker with 45o tilt receives larger wind loads. Multiple columns can distribute the loads of engineered PVO Pergolas on roof terraces.
