PV plants on roofs or ground

Ground or roof top applications of different power size from 1-6 Kw households ; 6-100 Small – Medium scale fo both market: s grid feeding systems or auto-consumption systems

Performance tests IEC 61215, IEC 61730

Performance tests IEC 61646, IEC 61730

IEC 61 000, IEC 62109, DIN VDE 0126

Estimated pay back time short term : 2-4 years, medium term: 4-6 years, long term : 6-8 years (*)

Medium term

Replacing fossil energy consumption by solar renewable energy is an increasing solution in Mauritius. Considering the climatic condtions, PV energy recovery is about 1500 kWh / year / KWp,

Thin films PV panels are less known than silicon PV panels ; they are however less expensive and their efficiency are less sensitive to ambiant temperature.

Inverter is the weak link of the photovoltaic plant in term of life expectancy, (twice less long than the life expectancy of the PV panels.
