35 Fronius Eco and Symo inverters have been installed in this 1MWp solar farm supplying the postgraduate and research-based university with all its generated electricity. The zeroexport solar project, which also integrates with the existing CHP (combined heat and power) unit on site, will provide a big part of the energy requirements of the University and contributes towards the longterm sustainable and clean energy goals of this education establishment.
Additional to providing both financial and carbon savings, the 1MWp site provides a key renewable energy research facility for its students. Providing opportunities to use industrial-scale facilitates for education and training support is something for which Cranfield already has an impressive reputation.
Damian Baker, Managing Director at RenEnergy remarked, “We decided to use Fronius for the Cranfield project for three basic reasons:
|Size of installation||1 MWp|
|System type||Field installation|
|Inverters||35 Fronius Symo & Eco|
|Annual yield||1,028 MWh|
|CO2 savings / year||308 to|
|Special feature||Zero feed-in|
