SPG SOLAR UNVEILS NEW TECHNOLOGY AND TRAINING CENTER

Sacramento-based facility showcases SunSeeker®-friendly installation process; offers hands-on training experience

Petaluma, Calif. – June 12, 2013 – SPG Solar, a leading provider of utility and commercial solar power products and services, today announced the opening of the Technology and Training Center at Depot Park in Sacramento, Calif. The facility provides a unique training opportunity for construction crews, engineers and designers to assemble and install SPG Solar's SunSeeker single-axis tracker.


"We constructed the new facility to display our simplified seven-step install process, allowing solar developers and construction firms the opportunity to build the system from start to finish," said Doug May, CEO of SPG Solar. "The goal of the facility is to help people develop the proper technical skills for installation, so crews can hit the ground running once they're in the field and on the clock."

The opening of the Technology and Training Center is the next step in SPG Solar's mission to have the lowest install costs and highest quality single-axis tracker on the market. The simple installation of a single-axis tracking system increases a system's output and maximizes a project's ROI. The SunSeeker tracker was engineered to be installed faster and perform under any condition. The system follows the sun throughout the course of the day to help maximize solar energy production.

SPG Solar will also use the facility for testing, recently completing a 50-year lifecycle test which proved that the tracker is designed to handle the elements with all key components fully operational upon completion. SPG Solar currently has 3.5 megawatts (MW) of the SunSeeker tracker in operation at the location. For more information on the Technology and Training Center, please contact SPG Solar.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
