Duke Energy Approves 35MW Solar Farm in Cleveland County

Innovative Solar Systems' 35 MW solar farm project in Cleveland County has been approved for interconnection to Duke Energy's electrical grid, the company learned this past week.

Asheville, NC May 17, 2014


The large-scale solar farm developer in Asheville, N.C., said Friday the company will be securing an owner, financing, and investor for this project now that it has passed the last hurdle of Duke Approvals. The project should be commissioned and on line in mid- to late-2015. This project is one of many large-scale utility farms planned for 2014.

Innovative Solar Systems boasts a long track record of developing solar farm projects in North Carolina and the nation, according to John Green, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Partner.

Green said the company is passionate about clean, green energy, and its focus is to design and develop at least 1GW of solar farm projects in 2015 in the United States while expanding into more global markets to support off-grid, tied systems as well as on-grid utility interconnected systems. ISS's solar farm projects in the United States have come to be known as the benchmark for quality and reliability.

The newly approved 35MW project in Cleveland County will utilize Advanced Energy Inverters to minimize field wiring and maximize the overall returns of the system. Deck monitoring systems with remote diagnostics will be employed to insure that the solar farm power generation plant is always producing maximum power output on any given day or time.

This solar farm project should provide enough electricity in Cleveland County to power at least 7,500 average-size homes. For information on this project or others under development with Innovative Solar Systems, call (828)-215-9064.

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.
