meeco America Latina provides Paraguayan farmers with clean energy

Installation of 11 sun2flow systems for 5 ranches in the Chaco region

The meeco Group, a clean energy provider is about to complete an important sun2flow solar project through its subsidiary meeco América Latina S.A., based in Asunción/Paraguay. meeco's activities have been recently blossoming in the Paraguayan solar market supported with the implementation of various solar projects mostly via the innovative sun2flow water pumping system. Always keeping environmental sustainability in its cross hairs as core strategy, meeco furthers its mission by providing farmers and local communities with clean energy solutions and services.


This new project consists of a joint order from CREA, an association of farmers dedicated to technical modernisation. In the context of this project, The meeco team has installed eleven sun2flow systems in five different ranches which are all located in the Chaco region, in the north-west of the country. This highly remote area, is characterized by the absence of connections to the electrical grid and represents therefore key challenges in energy supply. However, as a leader and expert in turnkey clean energy solutions, meeco is used to work in off-grid environments and knows how to face their specific requirements. Thanks to customized clean energy solutions, The meeco team creates suitable and affordable tools for the farmers in order to deal with such adverse circumstances.

All constructions and installations to pump water from artificial water reservoirs into tanks have now been completed to the entire satisfaction of the clients. The water supply of the farms is now permanently supported with eleven 1 kWp sun2flow PV generation systems which provide a daily flow rate of 60 m3, making water provision possible for approximately 1.000 cattle for each system.

Part of meeco's broad and high-technological product range, sun2flow is the most successful product in Paraguay by perfectly meeting farmer's expectations and needs in term of energy supply in off-grid areas.

Oliver Jann, director of meeco América Latina expressed: "This project shows that PV technology has conquered its place in off-regions of Paraguay. We expect that the investment of the ranchers will pay off within 18 months alone with the Diesel saved."

Through this project, The meeco Group once again improves its leading position by supplying Paraguay with solar PV systems. The team is dedicated to strengthen local communities and companies in Paraguay with its turnkey solutions and is renowned to provide excellent customer service and system maintenance. The meeco Group plans to extend its field of expertise into other agricultural market segments such as high-volume irrigation in crops like rice or soy or the provision of electricity to customers based on power-purchase agreements, without any necessity of big investments from the customers' side.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
