Solar power enables companies to become less dependent on ever-increasing utility prices. Solar can power any three phase load in farms, factories and the like, including irrigation pumps, cold stores, bottle molding machines, etc. In these cases the solar offsets grid electricity, realising direct savings on the utility bill. Solar power can feed in directly into the company grid.
The optional energy management system ensures:
- stability of the electrical company grid;
- prevention of feeding back solar power into the national grid;
- optimal integration of backup generators into company grid;
- online and real-time insight into solar energy production.
With the current turn-key installation prices and KPLC unit price, an industrial-scale solar system may prove to have a simple payback of 3 to 4 years. With the guaranteed warranty on solar modules of 30 years (!) this means >25 years of free energy!
