AN ALTERNATIVE APPROACH TO THE INTERCONNECTION

By Brad Micallef, President and Managing Director & President

Most people in the solar industry are familiar with modules, inverters, and recently the proliferation of trackers. They typically had both brand and deep knowledge of DC system efficiencies, ground ratio coverages, and inverter MPPT functionality.  Ask the same people about transformers, metering, or overhead MV pole mounted hardware, and the group of people with broad and deep knowledge thins considerably … at least in the solar industry.


MV overhead equipment is actually quite common. It’s literally installed all around us. At our homes, businesses, schools, along roads, and makes up the vast majority of our distribution electrical grid’s infrastructure.


The knowledge of MV equipment is hardly secret, but it is siloed in the company’s who work with it regularly, and the company’s who create products to serve them. Utilities, and utility suppliers.


Another barrier, the 30’ vertical gap that separates that same equipment from the casual observer on the ground. That 30’ gap cannot easily (or safely) be closed without appropriate equipment and considerable training.


That 30’ gap prevents the majority of people in the solar industry from closing the knowledge gap as well.


The same 30’ gap creates barriers to QA/QC processes, continuous improvement, and innovation … and in some cases, the commercial operation of solar Facilities too.


We are eliminating the gap with the introduction of the RVC PLUS and ClearSky Interconnection products.

Moving these critical interconnection functions into pad-mount gear creates significant gains in procurement efficiency, factory level quality control, simplified installation, and even overall cost savings.


When considering your next project, consider alternatives to your interconnection and ensure your project’s success!
