60kW Grid Tie – Boston

This 60kW Grid Tie system consists of two 25kW SMA inverters that are located in different parts of the property and connected via the local area network to ensure common management and monitoring.  The system is designed for maximum self consumption but if excess power is produced it will be fed back the Cape Town municipal grid for a compensation of approximately 70c/kWh.

While this is much less than the actual cost of grid power it still makes sense to enter into this arrangement on medium and large systems, even more so for commercial systems that typically see a one or two day “down time” every week in terms of power consumption.
