Town Of Thompsons Texas Powers Up On Solar With Installation By Alba Energy

Project helps town of Thompsons generate energy from sunlight.

Alba Energy is proud to announce a beautiful new solar project located in Thompsons, Texas. A 34 kW photovoltaic (PV) solar power system now provides electricity to the small Texas town located in Fort Bend County within the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan area.

The project features 108 QCELLS solar panels and 3 SolarEdge inverters installed using a ground-mounted application.

Residents and visitors to the town of Thompsons will benefit from approximately 49,000 kilowatt-hours of clean energy expected to be produced each year by the new solar power system. This is the environmental equivalent to the carbon sequestered by 892 tree seedlings grown for 10 years, or 32.6 acres of forest in one year.

Alba Energy was selected for this project by NRG, a large electric utility with coverage in Texas, after winning a competitive bidding process.

"Alba competitively bid and flawlessly executed the Thompsons Solar facility ahead of schedule. I would certainly recommend and use Alba Energy as a preferred installer of solar facilities in Texas."
-Anthony Armpriester, NRG Engineering & Construction

"We were delighted to be selected as the EPC partner for this install, representing our 4th commercial solar project in the past 12 months in collaboration with NRG to deliver high quality solar installations. We very much appreciate the trust placed in us by NRG and look forward to further opportunities in the future." -Graeme Walker, Alba Energy's Founder and CEO

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.
