The meeco Group has completed the first dozen rooftop solar PV installations in a planned 67-installation, 750 kW initiative in Mauritius. SETL, a subsidiary of the LEAL Group, is meeco's partner for the projects.
meeco and SETL are using 150 W copper indium gallium diselenide thin-film panels from Solar Frontier and SMA Sunny Mini Central 7000HV inverters. Racking and non-penetrating mounting material is provided by Krannich Solar.
The Bureau de l'Ã�ducation Catholique's (BEC), Mauritius' education body, put out a request for proposals in 2011 in order to secure solar power equipment and installers for 67 school-rooftop installations.
