Envision Solar International installed a second “Solar Tree” solar energy array for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) at their Vehicle Testing and Integration Facility.
Envision Solar completed the installation of the Solar Tree array for NREL four and a half days after the components arrived at the site on a single truck. The Drag and Drop capability Envision Solar offers meant limited disruption at the site and the ability to use the product right away, which was appealing to NREL.
System benefits of the new tree were maximized by integrating SunPower E20 solar panels and a compact transformerless bi-polar inverter from Ideal Power Converters.
The Solar Tree structure is designed to withstand 120 mph winds and six feet of snow simultaneously.
