Alpha Energy Releases New Enclosure for Solar Power Market

Alpha Energy, leading developer of turn-key renewable energy systems, introduces a newly designed outdoor enclosure to provide robust protection for critical renewable energy power components located in harsh, storm-prone environments.

(Bellingham, WA) – November 13, 2012 - Alpha Energy, leading developer of turn-key renewable energy systems, introduces a newly designed outdoor enclosure to provide robust protection for critical renewable energy power components located in harsh, storm-prone environments.


The Alpha PWE-3 enclosure accommodates multiple charge controllers, batteries and circuit breaker configurations to make renewable energy system design as flexible as possible. Using Alpha's new Optimum Power Solutions (OPS) Configurator, a complete system can be designed in minutes to meet the customer's exact load and geographic location requirements.

"This equipment enclosure leverages the proven performance qualities of Alpha's outside plant broadband legacy and features a tough exterior design, easy operator access and unmatched reliability," said Gord Petroski, Director of Business Development for Alpha Energy. "As far as versatility, the aluminum construction and powder-coated exterior make the PWE-3 the leading choice against wind, rain, snow and other extreme elements."

Alpha's PWE-3 features newly integrated storm hoods and innovative Z-bracket vents to protect critical power equipment and eliminate snow ingress in severe climates. To ensure optimum field performance, each enclosure is tested to blizzard condition standards including simulated 60mph wind-driven snow. Also offering exceptional cooling and protection, the PWE-3 allows up to 18 different configurations for simple adaption to any photovoltaic system.

Alpha's renewable energy solutions will be on display in booth 529 at OSP Expo in Denver, CO. For more information about the PWE-3 enclosure and other renewable energy products, visit www.alpha.com.

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.
