IGT Awarded Contract From FSEC

Published on April 25th, 2014

Floridians are well versed in the challenges associated with natural disasters.

Many residents and shelters make use of fossil fuel-powered generators to provide power when the electrical grid has been compromised; obtaining fuel following the storm can be a challenge, however.

Independent Green Technologies (IGT) was awarded a contract from the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) to install seven (7) turnkey, 10 kW Photovoltaic Systems at schools designated as Emergency Shelters (E-Shelters).

The E-Shelter Program has added more than one MW of combined photovoltaic generating capacity to Florida using American-made components.

One Megawatt Can Power One Thousand Homes

Three (3) of the seven installations were grid tie only and the remaining four (4) were grid tie with a 1215Ah battery back-up system.  On an average day of Florida sunshine, these systems will produce approximately 48kWh of clean energy.

Grid Tie Photovoltaic

Photovoltaics are a natural complement for fossil-fuel generators; they are ready to support the shelter when the sun is shining and can work with the on-site generators to provide electricity when there are special needs.
