Solarclarity Caribbean delivers 300kW Solar System for a project in Jamaica!

No electricity will be feed back into the grid.

The commissioning of the system at Freeport follows the installation of a 500-kilowatt solar facility at Rainforest Seafoods’ Kingston location last year.

Brain Jardim (CEO of Rainforest Seafoods) says in the ‘Jamaica Observer’:

“The systems are expected to result in greater efficiencies and savings, and increase the company’s production capacity in order to better supply its markets in Jamaica and overseas.”

25 March 2013 – Article Solar Frontier – High yields – even on cloudy days

Photovoltaic plants on partially shaded roofs, with suboptimal layout or non-optimal tilt angles are deemed low yielders. Regions with lower irradiation values and a high portion of indirect or diffuse light are seen in the same dim light. Thin-film modules made of copper, indium and selenium can show their mettle even under these conditions, and contradict this view.

Plant planners and those wishing to invest in photovoltaic plants have been concentrating to date mainly on roofs facing south, since these have the best exposure to sunlight, and therefore the best yields.
