This project was an almost 15 kW roof-mount PV system on a new building in Brooktondale, NY – so new that it was still under construction when we were installing the system!
The new electric service at the barn hadn’t even been hooked up to the grid yet – but once installed, our panels provided electric power for the other contractors to run their tools. This was done safely with SMA’s Secure Power Supply.
A unique design consideration for this project was the ability to add battery back-up in the future, if desired. The box on the far left of the photo below is a DC disconnect switch, which could allow one string of modules to be diverted to a battery bank.
This was a great experience to work with other local contractors on site. We hope the homeowner enjoys their future home site!
