Remote communities often operate without the benefit of a main utility grid and depend on diesel fuel for power generation. This dependence on diesel represents not only economic cost, but also environmental cost in the form of greenhouse gas emissions and noise pollution.
Besides encouraging more renewable electricity generation, improved energy storage technologies have several benefits, including a more efficient grid that is unaffected by disruptions and less carbon dioxide emissions because the electricity will be greener.
Morningstar's TriStar MPPT 600V charge controller leverages Morningstar's innovative TrakStar™ MPPT technology and our more than twenty-five years of power electronics engineering excellence, to enable the widest input operating voltage range available from a solar array, wind turbine or hydro input. This controller's standard and DB versions are for off-grid applications, and the TR versions were developed to enable retrofitting grid-tied systems with battery backup.
