A photovoltaic power station, also known as a solar park, is a large-scale photovoltaic system designed for the supply of electricity into the grid. They are differentiated from most building-mounted and other decentralized solar power applications because they supply power at the utility level, rather than to a local user or users. They are sometimes also referred to as solar farms or solar ranches, especially when sited in agricultural areas.
The power conversion source is via photovoltaic modules that convert light directly to electricity, which differs from the other large-scale solar generation technology, such as concentrated solar power.
Photovoltaic power stations are typically rated in terms of the DC peak capacity of the solar arrays, in mega watt-peak (MWp), or of the nominal maximum AC output in megawatts (MW) or mega volt-amperes (MVA).
Several components are needed to set up a solar park. Components such as Solar modules, Mounting rails and brackets as well the sturdy structure for the mounting of modules, Solar trackers, Inverters, Connectors, Cables, Transformers, Electrical switch gear, etc are some of the important components required in every Solar park design. Due to the complexity of each and every component, several manufactures are involved in the design and production of these components.
Alt-Energy is engaged with renowned companies who produce different components required in setting a solar park. We always make sure to supply the best in quality and affordability to guarantee an acceptable ROI for all our renewable projects.
