Manufacturer: Canadian Solar
Cell Arrangement: 72 (6×12)
Cell Type: Poly-crystalline
The MaxPower panels contain 72 solar cells, have high system energy yield at low irradiance, and are suitable for harsh environments. The cells convert sunlight into electrical energy.
An inverter converts electricity generated by solar panels, direct current (DC), into alternating current (AC), electricity that can power your lights and appliances.
ANSI C12.20 power meter
RS-485 and Zigbee inputs
GSM cellular or Ethernet connectivity
The LGate 120 is a single-phase electronic watt-hour meter for remote monitoring of solar photovoltaic systems. It features a smart communications module to automatically transmit meter data over cellular or Ethernet networks.
Each array is metered and interconnected to the distribution grid of the member cooperative through the same type of transformer that connects the grid to a house or business. The transformer increases the voltage of the electricity to match the voltage of the grid. The electricity is sold to the cooperative at the same wholesale price as electricity produced or purchase from other sources.
