Wise Power Systems Installs 5 Megawatt Solar Micro Grid, Annobon Island, EG

Solar Micro Grid Panels Annobon EG

Wise Power Systems has installed one of the world’s largest 100% solar micro grids on Annobon Island, Equatorial Guinea. The systems is made up of 20,000 solar panels capable of producing up to 5 Megawatts of power, and the system has up to 10 Megawatts of power storage. The island, located 100 miles off the west coast of Africa, previously only had diesel generators that would only produce power for a few hours each day. Now, thanks to Wise Power Systems, the people of Annobon Island have access to electricity 24 hours a day.

This new access to reliable power now gives the island and its residents the ability to do things that previously were impossible. This includes keeping their streets lit at night, powering their homes, and even powering freezers to preserve and store fish caught in the surrounding fishing grounds.

In addition to the Micro Grid, Wise Power Systems also replaced 10,000 light bulbs in the main city of San Antonio de Palé with our own patented low-usage LED Lights. Each of these lights is capable of lasting for over 80,000 hours of use, and output an industry-leading 180 lumens per Watt. Upgrading these lights means that there is now less strain on the grid, leaving more room for future expansion. The island’s government has already begun construction on a new hospital, a new school, and even a new stadium.

The Wise Power Systems Micro Grid provides a host of new opportunities. Now, the people of the island can experience and learn about solar power first-hand, and work to improve and spread the technology throughout the globe.

As a result of our efforts, Wise Power Systems was honored with the Award for Excellence in International Trade by the World Trade Center Delaware.

What Is A Photovoltaic Solar Panel And How It Can Help You

You may have heard of a photovoltaic solar panel before, but most
people are unsure exactly what it is and how it can help them. This
is important to know no matter where you live. The people of
Wilmington, DE are being smart and taking time to find out what
this is and how it can help them. There are many things it can do
for your home, business and bank account.

Let’s start with what this solar panel is. It is a panel that was
designed to generate electricity using a phenomenon which is known
as photovoltaic effect. This happens when certain materials produce
electric currents when they are exposed to the light of the sun.
The panel is basically a large series of semiconductor PN junctions.

Understanding how this panel works is a subject for now that you
will need to research more on your own. Now you need to know the
main ways that it can help.

1. Saves money – When you use solar energy to power your
home or business, this solar panel will help to save money because you will get all of the energy needed from the sun. The money that will need to
be spent is to get a good solar system installed. Once it is
installed, it is free to use because no one can charge you for
using a natural resource that is everywhere.

2. Provides sufficient energy for any home or business, no matter how large or small.

Now that you know what a photovoltaic solar panel is and how it can
help you, it is time to decide if this is something that is right
for your home or business. Do more research to make a more informed decision, but don’t delay because every minute you delay is costing you money that doesn’t need to be spent for energy.
