Selecting DAS Equipment on Utility Scale PV Projects

Data acquisition systems (DAS) are often employed on small utility scale solar projects to gather information about the performance and conditions of a site. Various sensors, meters, and equipment collect the data that must then be evaluated and visualized within a database. Operators then assess this data to ensure that the solar power plants are […]

Design Considerations when Sizing Grid-tied Solar versus Off-grid Solar

Appropriately sizing a customer’s solar system is imperative for happy clients. Correct sizing is even more critical with off-grid solar systems, as the utility grid is not available to use as a power source. Needlessly oversizing an off-grid system means clients pay more money for components that are often, if not always, unnecessary. Undersizing an […]
