Japan’s First Renewable Energy University Maximizes Solar and Safety with SolarEdge
The university accommodates hundreds of students and faculty members, making PV safety an obvious concern and a top priority when selecting a suitable PV system. With the SolarEdge solution complying with the most advanced international safety standards, both the university officials and installer were able to enjoy full peace of mind when making their decision.
More Energy by Design
To maximize the system’s capacity and to generate more energy, an east/west tilt racking structure was fitted on the rooftop. Generally, this mounting solution cannot be utilized with a traditional string inverter due to design limitations. However, SolarEdge Power Optimizers allow for multi-orientation and significantly longer strings that can easily adapt to the rooftop layout, generating overall higher revenue from the system.
By using the SolarEdge monitoring platform, the university can monitor real-time system performance anytime and anywhere. This information may be made accessible to faculty members, so they can compare daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly data to past performance and historical weather conditions. This helps students and faculty to learn about the environmental benefits of going solar, such as saved CO2 emissions, the equivalent number of trees planted, and more.
