Solaria facility tour announced for CPV USA 2013

Attendees of the 5th Concentrated Photovoltaic Summit USA (23-24 September, San Jose) will get the unique chance to tour Solaria's facility in Fremont.

PV Insider and the Solaria Corporation announced this week that the latter will be conducting an exclusive tour of their Fremont facility, giving attendees a fascinating insight into the progress of their Low Concentrated Photovoltaic (LCPV) technology.

"Solaria Corporation offers optimized solar system solutions to provide the best performance and lowest cost across a wide variety of site location and conditions. Solaria's LCPV modules use patented low-cost technology to increase energy yield and provide reliable performance while matching form and fit of conventional modules," stated a company spokesperson.
The tour, scheduled for September 25 (the day after the main conference concludes), will take attendees around Solaria's solar arrays and demonstrate their tracking technology, before viewing the manufacturing facility. Afterwards, the group will take part in a networking lunch with Solaria personnel.
Attendees will "view first-hand the company's innovative solar tracking arrays and LCPV modules, proving that LCPV is a viable solution," according to the company. "Solaria tracking arrays features state of the art tracking technology, which deliver up to 30% more energy than conventional fixed tilt systems."
In addition, the tour will show "how the tracker's smart use of materials, ease of procurement, installation, and engineered reliability makes it a highly robust and cost-effective choice to maximize the ROI of solar projects."
The tour has limited numbers, so PV Insider strongly advises booking early.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
