Sungrow announces it has installed PV and energy storage system for five islands in the Maldives.
The five sunny islands, Addu, Villingili, Kurendhoo, Buruni, and Goidhoo, are now equipped with the newly established PV diesel hybrid energy storage micro-grid which provides stable and high quality power to the island. This project can save USD 1.4 million in fuel costs and 4.32 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, and meets above 30% of local domestic and office energy demands.
"Sungrow has developed a complete system solution for load-shifting, peak-shaving, micro-grid, and frequency regulation. By the end of 2016, Sungrow has successfully completed over 400 energy storage projects globally and has an accumulated installation of over 1GWh. We'll continue to support the Maldives in their efforts to reduce power cost and protect the environment," said Professor Renxian Cao, president of Sungrow.
