American Clean Energy has commissioned 13 solar projects for the Toms River Regional School District in Ocean County, New Jersey. Advanced Energy Industries Inc.’s AE 500 solar inverter will be used at one of the projects, which requires the integration built-in reliability the model offers.
“We are extremely excited that the AE 500 units have been successfully commissioned on one of our projects,” says Steve Morgan, CEO of American Clean Energy. “AE inverters have a tremendous reputation as being purpose-built with project developers in mind, enabling easy installation, maintenance and top-end performance, which is important to our project investors and host customer. In addition to delivering a great product, the sales and engineering support personnel were great to work with and we look forward to developing more projects with this solar inverter in the future.”
AE says its 500 transformer-based central inverter maximizes energy harvest and accelerates payback with a 97% weighted California Energy Commission (CEC) efficiency rating, wide DC operating range, fast convergence MPPT, and the ability to produce full power all the way to 55°C. The inverter features a DC circuit breaker sub combiner that enables low-cost compliance with current safety and electrical codes, and improved serviceability. Built-in advanced power controls and optional factory-installed performance monitoring and metering make the solar inverter fully integrated and configurable, saving installation time and expense. SPW
