Two of the most promising product technology trends in solar today is the bifacial PV module and software enhancing technologies such as NEXTracker’s TrueCapture Smart Control System. For example, bifaciality allows the absorption of sunlight on the backside of the module, creating the potential for significant additional power production and lower overall levelized cost of energy (LCOE) compared to standard monofacial modules. The benefits of bifacial module technology can be significantly amplified when mounted on NEXTracker’s NX Horizon™ self-powered, independent-row single-axis solar trackers.
Many people tend to believe that a 50 -60kw inverter would be more suitable for a commercial PV system. But is bigger is better when it comes to rooftop PV? When dealing with a bigger and heavier inverter your system design restricted because it becomes harder to install. You also need to consider how to get the inverter up on the roof. Smaller inverter around 24kw is easier to get up a flight of stairs or other limiting access ways. 24kW is big enough to be cost effective and easier to install.
Let’s face it – Weather Happens. In 2017 alone, there were 16 weather events and climate-related disasters with losses exceeding $1 billion each across the United States. According to research, 92% of organizations have experienced an energy failure in the past year, and over a quarter admit that not knowing available options is a roadblock to future-proofing their business. But with the right energy strategy, organizations can protect against catastrophic events while improving commercial performance and unlocking new sources of value.
