Desertification has become a global ecological problem that has profoundly affected the balance of global ecosystems and seriously threatened the safety of human lives and property around the world.

Numerous large-scale photovoltaic power plants are entering the field of environmental sand control, and are exploring new models of sand prevention and control in order to reduce air pollution from dust storms caused by desertification.

A 100MW desert photovoltaic power plant located in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region installed Antaisolar’s manu-adjustable solar system and fixed solar racking, and has been successfully connected to the local grid since December 2020. It effectively promotes the coordinated development of local green energy, ecological environment, plateau agriculture and animal husbandry.

The area has a relatively dry climate with serious desertification and frequent dust storms. Located in a plateau area, the site’s terrain is high and undulating. Facing huge challenges posed by the complex construction conditions, Antaisolar conquered all the difficulties, and provided technology and product support for this PV project thanks to its rich experience in dealing with complicated solar racking projects.

By adjusting the tilt angle, the power station can absorb more direct sunlight, which can greatly improve the power generation efficiency. It is estimated that the annual power generation of the power station will reach 195 million kwh, saving 64,200 tons of standard coal and reducing 204,000 tons of carbon dioxide and other gases.

There is no doubt that the development of the photovoltaic industry not only has remarkable economic benefits, but also has the potential to contribute to sand prevention and control. And it’s expected to become the third biggest new way of sand prevention and control after afforestation, and desertification control and sand fixation by sand barriers.
