Nextronex Inc. Delivers Power PodiumTM to Settle Muter Electric .54 MW Solar PV Parking Canopy Structure

Ray Max ® Power PodiumTM Inverter System was delivered to the largest solar parking lot project in Columbus, Ohio.

September 3, 2014 – Nextronex Inc., a leader in high performance solar inverter systems, is pleased to announce that our Ray Max ® Power PodiumTM Inverter System was delivered to the largest solar parking lot project in Columbus, Ohio. Settle Muter known for their solar projects which include schools, industrial buildings and now parking lots are pleased with the simplicity of incorporating the Power PodiumTM solution for this project.


Jay Troger, CEO of Nextronex, observes that not only does the Power PodiumTM provide a quick field commissioning alternative, the physical format makes for a clean industrial look in an area that will be visible to the public. The Nextronex solution with it's patented Distributed ArchitectureTM inverter system provides SME with proven performance in the field consistently providing higher energy output and 100% uptime. Our track record combined with our standard 10 year system warranty makes Nextronex the right choice for solar developers and Independent Power Producers. Nextronex's reputation of successful installations and quality customer service is a perfect fit for the parking lot solar inverter solution that SME needs.

Dave Caulkins from SME observed that "The delivery of the Inverter System from truck to final position was very efficient and happened in less than 10 minutes. Once the parking lot canopy solar panels are installed we will just need to hook up some final connections and we will be ready for solar power! This allows for faster field commissioning."

Using parking lot spaces for solar fields is an ideal multiuse of space. The canopy serves as a panel base for the solar panels while providing environmental protection to the parked cars. We expect to see more parking lots around the country taking advantage of this convenient green energy solution.

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.
