What makes a

PV module exceptional?

It has to outperform its competition. It has to generate high yields,


generate them reliably and continue to generate them for years.
Conergy’s PowerPlus does just that. The Conergy PowerPlus series
of PV modules ensures you get maximum return on your investment.

Across the globe, one in every ten modules is manufactured, sold or


installed by Conergy. We hold ourselves and our products to the highest
standards. That is why Conergy is the global leader in PV systems.

Indirect Evaporative Cooling


Wherever it’s warm and there is consistent
low humidity, such as in the arid Mountain
West, evaporative coolers, also known as swamp
coolers and wet air coolers, can be an energy-
efficient, money-saving means to cooling a
building space. In recent years, several compa-
nies have introduced a more sophisticated ver-
sion of the evaporative cooler, the split-stream
or indirect evaporative cooler (IEC).
How It Works: A swamp cooler passes
warm air over a wet surface, and the evapo-
rating water cools the air while increasing its
humidity. This may be ideal in a desert environ-
ment but not so ideal where the air is already
humid. The IEC, instead of spraying cooling
water into the airstream directed indoors,
uses cooled humid air on one side of a heat
exchanger to cool dry air on the other side. The
temperature drop can be up to 20°F (10°C),
depending on conditions. That cool, dry air is
blown into the living space while the humid air
exhausts to the environment.

powered evaporative cooler works can be

about cost overruns — if fees or charges rise unexpectedly, who pays?

Scheduling and Installation


Once you’ve settled on an installer, negotiate firm dates for instal-
lation and commissioning. (That’s when the completed system has
been inspected and is actually connected to the grid and running.)
A post-commissioning visit from the installer should validate system
performance, and the rep can explain the inverter’s monitor display so
you can track power production. Be sure to get the equipment manuals
and warranties and file them safely. GS

Accurately Monitoring
the Performance of your
Solar Energy System

To maximize the effectiveness of your solar energy system, you need


to know how it is performing. A Kipp & Zonen pyranometer
accurately measures the solar radiation available to your system in
real time. Comparing this with the power generated allows you to
calculate the efficiency of the system. A drop in efficiency indicates
the need for cleaning, ageing or a fault, allowing you to schedule
preventive maintenance and to monitor your return on investment.

Make that difference and contact Kipp & Zonen for the solutions
available.

Solar has never been more popular
As the world’s most prestigious sport, F1 embodies the pursuit of excellence
through technological expertise and innovation. At Trina Solar, it’s because of
this shared passion for innovation that we’ve teamed up with the Renault F1
Team, one of Formula One’s most advanced teams. As solar accelerates on the
track to grid parity, we think it’s time to bring solar to an even larger audience –
the world. For more information, visit us at www.trinasolar.com
