Alberta Solar One (ABS1), a 36,500 panel (13.7MW-DC) project located in the Canadian province of Alberta is now energized and in full operation.

The panels used in the project are manufactured by Silfab Solar and incorporate SimbaX, Morgan Solar’s proprietary optical film technology.

Morgan Solar says the technology uses optical films to redirect otherwise lost light, onto the PV cells to boost generation. Adding that the films can be formatted to be easily integrated into any panel manufacturer’s production processes.

The Alberta project will supply the equivalent energy needs of about 3,000 homes, offsetting about 12,000 tonnes of carbon annually.

The project was co-developed by Enbridge and Morgan Solar, with support from Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA) and Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC).

The company says it is currently working with partners on variants that can be incorporated into buildings, to generate 100% of the power with 90% of the cells and mitigate the impact of single-axis trackers’ shading on bifacial modules.
