CPS America announced the opening of its new U.S. headquarters and innovation center near Dallas, Texas. The new Innovation Center headquarters will house CPS Labs, the CPS America service team, Network Operations Center (NOC), and expanded warehouse services. The team will also provide on-site training for solar and energy storage providers.
“The CPS America team has worked incredibly hard to make our new headquarters a center for innovation,” said Bryan Wagner, General Manager for CPS America. “Meeting the needs of our customers now while looking ahead to shape what’s next in solar and energy storage technology was our primary goal in designing this new space. We’re ready to meet the clean energy growth demands ahead and change we will see over the next decade.”
The centrally-located headquarters near a major metropolitan airport will help the service team to respond quickly for on-site customer support and allow customers an easier route to travel to Texas for hands-on trainings. CPS has been in Richardson, Texas, since starting a R&D Lab back in 2009.
The state-of-the-art network operations center (NOC) was built for growth as the clean energy industry expands distributed networking capabilities.
“Our knowledgeable team has often been able to spot issues before on-site personnel do,” said James Oswald, CPS America Service Director, speaking of the NOC. “Alerting personnel to unusual energy patterns or deploying remote updates to save truck rolls have saved countless personnel hours.”
Last year, CPS sent over 15,000 commands remotely while keeping inverters up and running across 10,000+ solar plants in the USA.
The headquarters opening comes on the heels of CPS America’s release of their flagship inverter, the 250/275kW inverter. The 250/275kW is designed for solar sites from 2 MW to 2 GW and employs broad adaptability and flexibility a custom solar solution. The 250/275kW inverter will be showcased at RE+ in Anaheim in September.
