Power-One, Inc. (Nasdaq:PWER), a leading provider of renewable energy and energy-efficient power conversion and power management solutions, today announced that the company has installed 25MW of AURORA® solar power inverters in one of the largest PV installations to date in India.
Financed by the State Bank of India, this aggressive program features 25MW of Power-One's unique central modular inverters in Gujarat, India. The project developer is Visual Percept Solar Projects Pvt Ltd.
A total of 73 units of AURORA® PVI-330.0-TL indoor inverters have been installed along with Medium Voltage switch gears and transformers, to properly meet GETCO directive for energy injection in the transmission network. The entire project is sited in an area of 50 hectares covered by more than 100,000 polycrystalline solar panels.
This project will be completed in a few weeks supplying clean energy to electricity grid. Thanks to Power-One's multiple MPPT (maximum power-point tracking) technology and the modular design of the AURORA® PLUS Inverter, this installation will benefit from the highest levels of energy harvesting.
