SOLECTRIA RENEWABLES Completes Delivery of 1.2MW of PV inverters to

Solectria Renewables announces the installation of over 1.2MW of its signature premium efficiency solar PV inverters (PVI 60kW, PVI82kW & PVI95kW) at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co, located in Chico, CA.

Lawrence, MA. (April 30th, 2008) Solectria Renewables announces the installation of over 1.2MW of its signature premium efficiency solar PV inverters (PVI 60kW, PVI82kW & PVI95kW) at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co, located in Chico, CA.

"We are proud to provide inverters for one of the country's largest private solar installations. This installation is proof that Solectria Renewables is a great inverter choice for MW sized PV installations," said James Worden, CEO of Solectria Renewables.
The inverters will be used as part of a 1.4 MW solar project recently completed. The power plant, along with an existing 1MW fuel cell plant, is providing the majority of Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.'s electrical energy needs.
DC Power Systems, Inc, a full-service wholesale distributor of renewable energy products located in Healdsburg, CA purchased the inverters from Solectria Renewables for use by Chico Electric, who installed the PV system.
Solectria Renewables offers 480VAC PV inverters at a wide range of power levels13.2kW, 15kW, 60 kW, 82kW and 95kWand are for use in systems from 10kW to multi-MW-level installations. The inverters are also available in other voltages such as 208 and 240VAC, and are listed to the newest UL1741/IEEE1547 standard.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
