Carolina Energy Conservation sold and installed an 18.55 DC kW system on a raised 2 story home in North Myrtle Beach early this year. The homeowner uses the upper floor as their residence and rents out the lower floor. There are multiple meters on the home, one for each floor. The system’s production was estimated to cover approximately 90% of the property’s annual usage.
Carolina Energy Conservation had several conference calls with Jinko and CivicSolar, and because of the technological advancements with the Jinko Maxim product, they made the decision to install two Fronius inverters with Rapid Shutdown Boxes, saving the customer significant money, not only on the optimizers but also on the labor to install the optimizers.
The local utility, Santee Cooper, currently has a rebate of $1.60 per watt up to 6kWs. Working with the utility, Carolina Energy Conservation was able to segregate the 70 Jinko Maxim 265 Watt panels to match the usage for each meter. That enabled the customer to get two $9,600 incentive checks from the utility.
The system is working perfectly and generating more power than original projections, much to the delight of the customer!
