20-kW Tracker System Commissioned in Ontario by i-Energy

i-Energy, a Taiwan-based leading developer and supplier of advanced photovoltaic power conversion and optimization products, announced the successful commissioning of a 20-kW solar power tracker system for the City of Welland, Ontario, Canada. Located at a road intersection, the solar power system is installed on land otherwise unusable due to easement requirements, demonstrating the feasibility of installing solar systems in non-traditional locations.  The system uses 86 i-Energy GT260 microinverters integrated with 230-W solar modules and 5-kW Deger Tracking Systems.  The City of Welland will receive Ontario FIT (feed-in-tariff) credits for the power generated by the solar power system into the grid of Welland Hydro Electric, the local power utility.

ienergy“We are pleased to partner with the City of Welland and Welland Hydro Electric for their renewable energy needs,” said Dr. Steven Huang, CEO of i-Energy.  “This project underscores i-Energy’s commitment to Ontario’s renewable energy development. This project can be a model for other municipalities to reposition otherwise non-productive land into solar energy production sites.”

This project further demonstrates the value and flexibility of i-Energy’s microinverters in commercial solar projects, expanding its applicability beyond traditional residential solar installations.
