This large-scale PV plant was built by the Chicago-based company Half Moon
Ventures and it features the first ARRA compliant PV inverters that have been
assembled at the new Ingeteam’s factory in Milwaukee.
Javier Pérez, Vice President of Ingeteam Inc, has said that “we are proud for
having participated in this project, as it enabled us to produce our new ARRA
compliant PV inverters. We believe that it will lead us to new opportunities, not
only in Wisconsin but in the whole country“.
Thanks to this solar power plant, the regional electric company will receive
enough energy to power 150 homes. The solar panels, about 3,500 units, were
built in the city of Jefferson for this project.
With more than 3 GW of solar PV inverters supplied worldwide, Ingeteam has
developed the new Ingecon Sun PowerMax U central inverters specifically for
the North American market, in compliance with the UL-1741 standard. These
inverters feature maximum efficiency levels of 98.6%, 1000 Vdc, NEMA 3R
protection ratings, DC and AC disconnections, and they are available with an
output power of up to 880 kW. The inverter model installed in Jefferson was the
Ingecon Sun 500 TL U X275 Outdoor.
