Centralized or Distributed? Which is going to occupy a greater proportion?

Read the News China offers 66GW of solar infrastructure to South Africa. The curiosity drove me to learn about the South Africa.

South Africa, located in the southernmost part of the African continent, is the second largest economy in Africa, rich in domestic coal, solar and wind energy resources, but poor in water resources, oil and gas resources are mainly dependent on overseas imports.

From the natural environment, South Africa belongs to the typical savanna climate, light resources are abundant. Photovoltaic power generation in such favorable climate conditions, coupled with its more obvious economic advantages, as well as relatively low KWH cost, has gradually become the current South Africa out of the energy crisis has great potential for development of a subsector.

From your point of view, which is going to occupy a greater proportion between centralized and distributed? 

-Centralized photovoltaics involve the installation of large, utility-scale solar farms that are designed to generate electricity for the grid. This approach can be more efficient and cost-effective than distributed photovoltaics, as large-scale operations benefit from economies of scale. 

Personally, I am very optimistic about the impact of ground-based photovoltaic systems in South Africa’s photovoltaic power generation

The Aluminum Ground Solar Mounting System of ZIYUAN ENERGY is generally installed in open field with Ground Crew or Cement Block as foundation. The system can be applied to medium and large scale solar PV projects and has strong adjustability. customers can specify the panels’array, the minimum ground clearance of the panels and the inclination angle of the whole mounting system.

Aluminum Solar Ground Mounting System

The main parts are Ground Screw, Pre-assembled Beam, Back Bracing, Rail, Rail Clamp, Rail Connector, Mid Clamp and End Clamp. According to the different shapes of Pre-assembled Beam, the Ground Aluminum mounting system can be divided into A type, N type, VI type and W type.
