Carmanah Supplies Grid-Tie Solar Power System for Utah's Largest Convention Center

Carmanah has supplied a customized 20 kW grid-tie solar power system to be installed on installed on the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Carmanah's Power Systems Group recently supplied an order to Pioneer Electric Inc., based out of Salt Lake City, for a customized 20 kW grid-tie solar power system. This grid-tie system will be installed on the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.


With more than a half million square feet of contiguous exhibit space, the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City is Utah's largest convention center and accommodates several thousand convention visitors every year. With an array of 200 watt solar panels connected to a 20kW power inverter, Carmanah's grid-tie solar power system will provide Salt Palace Convention Center with clean, renewable energy and significant savings in utility costs.

About Carmanah's Grid-Tie Solar Power Systems

Carmanah's grid-tie solar power systems are designed and installed on residential and commercial buildings and connected to the electrical grid. They supply a portion of the electricity required to run the site.

Using solar energy reduces dependency on the electrical utility and lowers monthly power bills. During the day, electricity generated by the solar power system is fed into the building, offsetting the amount of power being drawn from the grid. Any excess power is fed back to the power utility to be used by someone else, resulting in a power credit. This concept is known as net metering.
