which can be used by PV.
Neither the plants nor the PV need the entire spectrum, and in the
desert, neither _want_ the entire spectrum as it provides undesirable
You would know this if you didn't flunk out of middle school.
The realities of how reflection works and the fact that solar panels
point up say this is utter nonsense.
A red filter would absorb green and there would be nothing to reflect
even if this scheme didn't violate every rule of geometry and reflection.
Perhaps it is time for you to come out of the desert sun as it appears
