The floating solar industry represents a rapidly growing segment within the broader renewable energy sector, driven by increasing demand for clean energy solutions, advancements in solar PV technology, and the need to address land constraints and environmental concerns associated with traditional ground-mounted solar installations. Committed to driving the adoption of renewable energy sources, Ocean Sun is revolutionizing the way we think about solar energy by leveraging the vast potential of our planet's water bodies.
