Energizing 1st Solar Ground Mount System in City of Mountain Brook
Mountain Brook, AL, September 12, 2016: Today, we energized the 1st Solar Ground Mount system in the city of Mountain brook approved by the Mountain Brook City Planning Commission.
This 12 kW system consists of:
40 ea of the LG, 300 watt, Monocryctalline Black Panels, mounted on a 55’ long SnapnRack ground mount railing system, 40 ea SolarEdge P300-5 Series Optimizers, a SolarEdge SE10,000A String Inverter, a SolarEdge SE1000 Zigbee ethernet kit for real time monitoring, interconnected into the main 200 amp panel, augmenting the electrical consumption from Alabama Power Company.
Additionally, we designed a water cooling system to lower module temperature on hot days, thereby increasing overall efficiency by an average of 7%.
