Floating solar panels? If they float, that is. Fascinating stuff.

Fantastic development.  One that makes sense for once.

The cost of the floating platforms is comparable to land based and floating them on water makes it relatively easy to track the sun which pushes up output by 15-20%

Thames water have been looking at this. The panels will also reduce evaporation and reduce algal growth which will reduce processing costs.
