Taiwan-based inverter manufacturer i-Energy has delivered a 20kW solar power tracker system for a PV project in the City of Welland in Ontario, Canada.
The solar power system is built on a road intersection, and i-Energy supplied the project with 86 GT260 microinverters integrated with 230W solar modules and 5kW Deger Tracking Systems.
The generated electivity will be connected to the local power utility of Welland Hydro Electric under the Ontario feed-in-tariff programme.
Steven Huang, i-Energy CEO said: “We are pleased to partner with the City of Welland and Welland Hydro Electric for their renewable energy needs. This project underscores i-Energy’s commitment to Ontario’s renewable energy development. This project can be a model for other municipalities to reposition otherwise non-productive land into solar energy production sites.”
This project has a commercial value representing the company’s expanding strategy beyond the traditional residential solar installations.
