Whitepapers: PV inverter performance in desert-like locations


Wow, unique desert challenges addressed through rigorous testing!

On April 25, 2012 SMA America, LLC publish a study on how outdoor installed PV inverters held up under extreme weather conditions found in the desert. Conditions such as sandstorms and enormous temperature swings produce a whole new set of challenges for developers of PV inverters. Dust and sand is prevalent in the ambient air and tends to create serious obstacles in solar PV inverters installed outdoors, but with the new technology developed and rigid testing the inverter’s seals protected it from harmful dust deposits.

I don’t know about you but this stuff gets me excited. I’m really enjoying watching alternative energy develop in front of me.  We are indeed watching history in the making, but let’s not forget that energy conservation, although not the most attractive option is the best way to become energy independent. Check out the full story at the link below.

I think what is attractive about energy conservation knowing that we can become more independent from the mainstream "grid". Knowing we can the make due on our own without the big companies and governments taking a piece of everything. The future of alternative energy development is bright...and attractive.

And, if I may add to that, the future of alternative energy is rooted in conservation and efficiency!

Solar energy is been seen as the future power source which will lighten up our new world.
