During a recent product activation in the cleantech city of Moutier in Switzerland, PWRstation succeeded in doing what the industry is striving to achieve: install solar energy systems in record time.
While global demand for solar energy continues to reach record levels, today’s solar installation require custom design, engineering and implementation, making the acquisition and activation process long, complicated and costly.
Headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, and with offices in Miami, Florida, PWRstation designs and manufactures preassembled, transportable, activation-ready solar gensets for residential, commercial and off-grid use; uniquely engineered to remove the complexities, time and costs associated with fixed solar installation.
“Today, speed to market is an important competitive advantage in the solar industry, and one of PWRstation’s hallmarks,” says Robert Albertella, co-founder and CEO of PWRstation. “In fact, at PWRstation we typically use the term ‘time to activation’ because there is really no need for us to complete a lengthy installation process.”
Moutier’s grid-tied, rooftop PWRstation activation took less than 30 minutes.
When the city building where the PWRstation is currently position is knocked down later this year for renovation, the PWRstation will be relocated and reactivated at another location.
PWRstation Genesis models come with 3 and 5 kW power ratings and are characterized by their proprietary PV racking systems, which allow them to retract for transport and unfold for power generation. Early next year, the company introduce the Oasis line with power rating of 50 and 100 kW.
