pika-energy-solar-installation-westbrook-meOur partnership efforts with Pika Energy continue, the latest installment being the installation of an 8-panel PV array on their renewable tech manufacturing facility in Westbrook.

In addition to supplying power, the PV array will be used to test out Pika’s next-generation power electronics, such as a rapid shutdown-compliant solar string optimizer and a Tesla PowerWall-ready grid-optional inverter. Here’s Tony Nuzzo, Pika’s Electrical Engineer and Josh Baston, Solar Project Manager at ReVision, in front of the new system.

We hope to be able to use some of their technology in a battery + solar hybrid grid-tied/off-grid system in the near future… We’ll keep you posted!
