|The grid-tie Solar energy is a clean source of independence and decentralized power for everyone. Every person can be a part of the energy future, powered by solar technology. The sun is sending enough energy per year to power the world’s energy demand 10,000 times Millions of solar arrays are providing electricity to homes and businesses globally, with countless solar modules added daily.
|The grid-tie 469 kW-DC/392 kW-AC solar PV system on the roof of Clancy Moving Systems represents a unique advance in system design and string inverter installation. To satisfy code requirements, keep costs low, and speed installation, EnterSolar® and Pure Power Engineering devised an innovative method that takes advantage of the AE 3TL string inverter’s horizontal-mount capability.
|The 1000NX, a bipolar inverter, is specifically engineered to reduce wiring and labor costs by accepting DC inputs from a dual separable array. The DC architecture associated with the 1000NX inverter, when implemented correctly, can save significant conductor material costs compared to a traditional monopolar design. In order to maximize material and labor savings, it is important to understand the differences in DC electrical design for a bipolar architecture compared with traditional monopolar architecture.

Sika provides adhesive solutions to optimize the production processes of bonding the fixation devices to the mirror systems. With different curing speeds and thixotropic behaviors of the adhesive technology Sika is able to offer solutions for every existing production process and process improvements. The newest innovation Sikasil® AS-780 enables an immediate handling and packaging of the bonded mirror systems without the need for complex buffer zones, thanks to the exceptional initial green-strength. This simplifies the production process and eliminates large buffer zones which cause cost and potential glass breakage.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are being installed in ever increasing numbers throughout the world, and are expected to safely and reliably produce electrical energy over several decades of operation. However, many systems are not satisfactorily evaluated prior to being placed into service, and many have had little, if any, scheduled maintenance or testing over their lifetime. Unfortunately, this often leads to unsafe and underperforming systems with reduced value to their owners.

In the past year, US residential PV system sizes have grown by an average of 20 percent from a 5kW system to a 6kW system. Meanwhile, PV system prices have dropped by about 10 cents/watt per quarter. What is the best way for a solar company to weather these transitions? Our analysis into this question has yielded some amazing results and an opportunity for solar companies to boost profits by as much as 30 percent!
For years, designers have turned to central inverters for larger commercial installations. But with the recent changes in the NEC code and the increasing complexity in commercial design, leading installation companies like Amberjack Solar Energy LLC are looking more at optimized inverters. SolarEdge offers an optimized inverter solution that simplifies commercial design by offsetting module mismatch losses and integrating the latest safety features.
Sika takes pride in delivering products and solutions that will last decades under harsh environmental conditions and in our 30 years successful experience in the facade and 15 years in the renewable energy industries. The range of solar applications may be extremely varied, but systems share the same need for outstanding performance.
