NXGEN MODULAR DESIGNS TELECOMMUNICATIONS MODULE FOR 20-MW SOLAR PROJECT

Project complements PG&E's efforts to meet statewide energy goals in California

HURON, Calif. – July 11, 2012 – Pacific Gas & Electric's new 20-megawatt solar project, which includes a key telecommunications component provided by NxGen Modular (www.nxgenmodular.com), has begun operation in Huron.


The solar photovoltaic project, which was completed in eight months as part of PG&E's five-year clean energy initiative, uses a NxGen-designed module that contains the facility's telecommunications gear and connections.

"NxGen is particularly proud to play a role in developing sustainable energy sources that support our state's – and of course the data center industry's – growing need for power," said Liz Fetter, President and CEO of NxGen Modular.

NxGen is a provider of modular data centers and assemblies that are designed to improve customer data center operational performance and efficiency, lower overall costs, and facilitate seamless growth. This project, like many others, was a special design created for this specific purpose.

The facility's telecommunications components were specially designed by NxGen to retrieve and store critical performance data for the solar array. The module also integrates protection relays and controls.

"This underscores the point that modular does not mean ‘one-size-fits-all,'" Fetter added. "This project utilized a tailor-made design that was assembled and tested at the manufacturing plant well before the installation date. Once the facility was ready our installation, we were able to deliver and install a pre-tested component very quickly."

Construction of the project spanned eight months starting in October 2011 and ending in June 2012.

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.
