GES COMPLETES ITS FIRST PV PLANT IN JAMAICA

The PV plant has an installed capacity of 28 MW and it is already grid connected

Global Energy Services (GES) completed the construction of the first utility-scale PV plant in Jamaica. The 28 MW plant is a big step ahead for the renewable industry in the Caribbean country. Jamaica's commitment to renewable energy should avoid the current high fuel dependency of the country.


After some wind installation projects in Jamaica, this is the first PV Project executed by GES in the country. According to Luis Ares, GES'Chief Operation Officer, "The execution of a project in a country where the renewable energy activity is just starting is always a challenge; but thanks to our experience we have the required flexibility and can deliver same high standards all over the world. This first PV plant in Jamaica is an important milestone for GES, because of the scope of the project and the great potential of the renewable energy in the country."

With the plant's connection to the grid, GES adds 150 MW to the solar construction activity and starts 2017 with great expectations in this field. GES is working to continue increasing the income from the solar activity in the near future. This will reinforce GES' leadership as independent construction and service provider for the renewable sector.

GES started setting the benchmark in the wind sector. Its presence in the solar market grew step by step during the past decade until it became a main activity for the company.

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.
