Santa Barbara, CAUnited States
CivicSolar is proud to have teamed up with Smith Electric Services to install a 400 kW PV system at UC Santa Barbara.
SMA inverters were chosen due to the world class reputation of SMA as well as the cutting edge features of the Sunny Tripower series. The transformerless 20000TL and 24000TL units used in the array boast a peak efficiency above 98 percent, while OptiTrac Global Peak minimizes the effects of shade for maximum energy production.
The mounting was achieved via IronRidge racking atop a series of carports. IronRidge was chosen due to the winning combination of quality, ease of installation, and cost competitiveness.
Smith Electric Service is a leading solar installer based in Santa Maria, CA.
