Abstract

There are several ways of implementing a PV systems networking site, depending on the income that you would like to achieve. Fixtures can be built with solar tracking axis and two axes solar tracking. In this work we make a detailed comparative study of the implementation of a solar photovoltaic installation in a particular place, the three systems mentioned above. The study was performed from both constructive, analyzing the structural components of each of the systems, such as energy level, from the standpoint of performance and results achieved over a period of time. Obtaining criteria allow, in specific cases, the best choice. In the present work, we will also study the different models needed to obtain the appropriate permissions for the implementation of the system chosen between the ones explained above. Studies which analyze the environment surrounding the facility: the flora, fauna, hydrology and winds in the area or Environmental Impact Study. As well, the impact that the construction of an installation of this magnitude affects visually the area where it is located or Study of Landscape Integration. Keywords: solar photovoltaic energy, environmental study, landscape study, installation. 1 Introduction Over the past few years the decrease in the price of the components of solar photovoltaic installations, especially modules and investors, coupled with improved reliability and performance of the latter devices has given rise to a new application: the connection to a photovoltaic network. The direct conversion of solar energy into electricity through photovoltaic cells has been developed in recent years, in many countries, as an alternative
