This is an installation of photovoltaic panels in one of the two slopes of the roof of an agricultural shed. The installation, which covers a large surface in a uniform manner, is well integrated in the construction also from the perceptual point of view. The panels are ventilated on the back and the heat is recovered to dry the hay.
