Project : Ecocentre, Montreal
|System Overview :||
|Type of system:||Hybrid sytem|
1.5 kWp solar array installed on the rooftop and a 1.0 kWp wind turbine mounted on a 12-meter pole installed adjacent to the main building will furnish the essential energy required to operate the Eco-centre. Tied to Hydro-Québec (the first ever for the province) using separate SunTie and Grid-Tie inverters, this systems works in 2 ways. When the system produces more energy than the Eco-centre requires, it will act as a micro-generating station and transmit the surplus energy to the hydro grid. If the system generates less than is needed, the Eco-centre will take the energy it needs from Hydro-Québec.
Matrix Energy ’s grid-tie solar and wind turbine electric system changes DC electricity into useful AC electricity and also sends excess power generated back to the Hydro-Québec. The wind system also includes batteries, providing reliable back-up power during grid power outages. The battery-based inverter allows the Eco-centre to send power back to Hydro-Québec, while also protecting the Eco-centre against power outages.
In addition to providing the grid-tie system design to the project engineers and architects, Matrix Energy supplied all the system requirements including; solar modules, roof mount, inverters, battery bank, wind turbine, voltage controller.
