SFWCS / Irrigation system

SFWCS
SFWCS

SFWCS Agri-Solar system uses transparent solar panels as wind power generation blades to improve the traditional agricultural power system's solar panels affecting the crops and the farming machinery. The wind power system introduces airflow into MOFs metal materials and MOFs absorb moisture, and the MOFs are heated by solar thermoelectric devices to evaporate water vapor, and then naturally cooled and condensed into water stored in a water storage tank.
SFWCS tracks the sunlight through the tracing system to adjust the tilt angle of the blades to improve sunlight absorption efficiency, and the blades generate electricity to provide power.
