Claims(1)
  1. We claim the ornamental design for a dual trough concentrating solar photovoltaic module, substantially as shown and described.
Description

FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a dual trough concentrating solar photovoltaic module showing my new design;

FIG. 2 is a front elevation view thereof, the rear being a mirror image;

FIG. 3 is another front elevation view thereof, shown in an alternate position;

FIG. 4 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a right side elevation view thereof; and,

FIG. 7 is a left side elevation view thereof.

The features shown in broken lines in the various Figures are for illustrating environmental structure and form no part of the claimed design.
