Inverter manufacturer AEG Power Solutions and its subsidiary skytron energy, a monitoring and control systems manufacturer, have announced the completion of a 5.8 MW commercial PV installation for PPA Partners in Yuma, Arizona.
The installation covers four individual sites, each divided into multiple sub-sites, and a mix of rooftop, ground, and carport installations.
AEG PS supplied solar inverters from its range of modular and central inverter products, including its Protect PV.500 model and MPV.Systems.
Skytron energy provided a complete monitoring, control and supervision package which includes the PVGuard control room platform.
PPA Partners is a national renewable energy project development company with over 50MW of projects currently under development. “Delivering this highly complex installation from the design to the final grid connection has been a fantastic collaborative effort,” said Bruce Mercy, CEO of PPA Partners.
“The joint AEG Power Solutions and skytron energy team supported us in planning the architecture of the entire PV power plant, in choosing the best components and in designing an optimum plant operation,” continues Mercy. “The comprehensive service and support from a very competent team has been a great experience.”
“AEG PS and skytron energy are joining forces to meet the demand of their growing North American customer base. North American customers are served by local experts in the companies’ joint sales and service center in Plano, Texas, which is focusing on commissioning, operations, maintenance, service, and sales support,” said Enrique de La Cruz, president Americas of AEG Power Solutions. “Our combined expertise allows us to propose complete solutions and services for resilient, efficient solar installations but also for complex micro-grids.”
