ROCKLIN, Calif.—SMA inverters have recently been installed to help power up 3 MW of solar in Mexico as part of a rebuild for the Aura Solar I project in La Paz, Baja California Sur.
Aura Solar I is a 30 MW solar plant developed by Gauss Energia, a leading developer in Mexico. It is currently the largest solar plant in Mexico, delivering solar power directly to a local utility.
After suffering damage from a hurricane, a significant portion of Aura Solar I was out of commission. When the time came to rebuild the 3 MW section of the project that had been destroyed, Gauss Energía selected SMA inverters. The Aura facility has been delivering power to the grid since last [...]
Fronius is launching its Smart Meter to manage PV feed-in limits and monitor energy consumption.
The Fronius Smart Meter measures the electricity consumption of a building and communicates in real time with the inverter, which then controls the system’s output power to keep the electricity fed into the grid at or below the feed-in limit.
An increasing number of grid operators set feed-in limits for grid-connected solar systems. The global smart meters market is estimated to grow from an expected $11.1 billion in 2014 to $18.2 billion by 2019, at a CAGR of 10.2 percent from 2014 to 2019, according to a study by MarketsandMarkets.
Thanks to high accuracy and fast [...]
Sungrow, the world‘’s leading PV inverter manufacturer, has successfully held a series of energy storage training roadshows in Australia aimed at promoting its next generation hybrid inverter SH5K+ which has gained wide attention across the continent.
The roadshows, started September 20 hosted by Sungrow Australia Group and its authorized distributor, One Stop Warehouse, comprised of five training sessions across Australia and received significant interest from attendees all over the country.
With rapidly declining battery costs coupled with the end of the premium feed-in tariffs in some states at the end of the year, massive opportunities are expected to emerge in [...]
