Rooftop Solar Power Lowers Costs by ~30%
This manufacturing facility uses energy-intensive machinery that consumes approximately 300MWh of power each month. Using rooftop solar power generated from their SolarEdge system, Alta Plastic was able to lower their monthly electricity costs by ~30%.
Alta’s objective was to maximize their energy output while ensuring they met Vietnam’s FiT program regulations to export unused PV energy to the grid for revenue. SolarEdge’s DC optimized inverter and Power Optimizer solution ensures that each module produces at its maximum, enabling the system to produce more solar energy and accelerate ROI.
Export Limitation and FiT Monitoring
Alta also installed a SolarEdge Energy Meter with Modbus Connection to ensure that PV power produced during the week could be used for self-consumption, while power produced on holidays or when the plant is closed can be exported directly to the grid. They can use the SolarEdge Monitoring Platform to monitor the percentage of power consumed vs. exported to the grid and even remotely shutdown to prevent overloading.
