Salt Lake’s Convention Center Gets Grid-Tie Solar System

Carmanah’s Power Systems Group recently supplied an order to Pioneer Electric Inc., based out of Salt Lake City, for a customized 20 kW grid-tie solar power system. This grid-tie system will be installed on the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

With more than a half million square feet of contiguous exhibit space, the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City is Utah’s largest convention center and accommodates several thousand convention visitors every year. With an array of 200 watt solar panels connected to a 20kW power inverter, Carmanah says its grid-tie solar power system will provide renewable energy and savings in utility costs.

During the day, electricity generated by the solar power system is fed into the building, offsetting the amount of power being drawn from the grid. Any excess power is fed back to the power utility to be used by someone else, resulting in a power credit.

One thought on “Salt Lake’s Convention Center Gets Grid-Tie Solar System

  1. The 20 kw solar system we insalled was not through Carmanah, but Conergy. And our name is not Pioneer Electric Inc. Carmanah offered us a bid, but a previous offer from Conergy was accepted.
    We also installed a Fat Spaniel monitoring system.
    Cheers. Steven Bishop for Pioneer Solar and Electric (pioneering alternative energy since 1984).
