Largest Solar Install in the Southeast - A DOE Solar America Showcase

On May 21, the U.S. Department of Energy was involved in the unveiling of the largest rooftop photovoltaic system of its kind in the southeastern United States - on the rooftop of the Orlando Convention Center.

The solar installation at the Orange County Convention Center includes a 1 MW rooftop system and will generate 1,300-megawatt hours of electricity per year.


The installation is a U.S. Department of Energy Solar America Showcase. Solar America Showcases are part of the Department of Energy's solar program strategy to accelerate and advance solar technology and energy adoption and integration. All Solar America Showcase projects receive free Department of Energy technical assistance utilizing experts from the national laboratories, universities, and competitively selected engineering firms. Best practices and "lessons learned" from other solar projects are applied to each Solar America Showcase project, and upon completion, each Solar America Showcase serves as easily replicable models.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
