eIQ Energy Providing Parallel Wiring For 1.2 MW PV Plant


eIQ Energy Inc. has signed an agreement with Granite Construction Inc. to provide its Parallel Solar technology for a new 1.2 MW solar PV installation at Granite's aggregate and hot mix facility in Coalinga, Calif.

Parallel Solar, which allows solar modules to be connected in parallel, is designed to provide lower balance-of-system costs and better lifetime energy harvest than traditional series wiring, the company says.

eIQ Energy's vBoost DC-to-DC converter modules will be used with thin-film solar modules from Solar Frontier and are expected to boost the panels' output voltage to the optimum level for the array's central inverters. Siemens will supply the inverters for the project.
