“I’m proud that we have been chosen again by NREL. They are delighted the Solar Tree deployment went so quickly and without any typical construction problems,” stated Desmond Wheatley , Chief Executive Officer, Envision Solar.
“The addition of this Made in America 18 kW solar canopy incorporating EnvisionTrak™ and EV Charging supports NREL’s R&D mission to integrate electric vehicles and grid systems for enhanced value,” stated Tony Markel , Senior Engineer, NREL.
System benefits of the new tree were maximized by integrating the most efficient SunPower E20 solar panels and a compact transformerless bi-polar inverter from Ideal Power Converters.
