Eltek Passes 10,000 Hybrid-Solar Telecom Sites Installed

Eltek has announced it has installed more than 10,000 hybrid solar-grid power systems to remote telecom sites since it first launched hybrid-solar products in 2008.

Solar power for telecom sites was once thought of only for off-grid telecom sites, but is now picking up momentum in a wide range of network locations. By using these hybrid solutions, which combine solar backup power and high-efficiency DC power systems, instead of diesel back up systems in the 10,000 locations, service providers have eliminated more than 350,000 tons of C02 from the atmosphere and reduced electricity expenses by more than $150 million.

According to Bertrand Yeurc'h, Eltek Corporate Business Development Manager for Alternative Energy: "This achievement has been possible thanks to Eltek's high efficiency products and integrated hybrid solutions, combined with a global reach. Eltek has built various strategic partnerships over the years to ensure customer satisfaction and secure significant market share."

Depending on the equipment configuration and site power requirements, the savings at each site varies significantly, but typically the operational cost is reduced by between 70 percent - 80 percent primarily due to the reduction of diesel consumption by generators and reduced service costs. In addition, a hybrid solution provides a significantly improved reliability and uptime.

Eltek's ability to do turnkey projects in major countries across the globe as well as its MultiSite Monitor, which makes it possible to have a network wide overview to optimize utilization of energy sources and site performance, are other contributing factors to the company's success with hybrid sites.

Vicenza VI (SPX) Feb 25, 2016
The first exciting results have emerged from one of the very first BiSoN bifacial module operating systems to be installed: during the first month of exposure (from 27/11 to 23/12) the average yield was 120% greater compared to a standard system, meaning that the bifacial installation produced more than double the amount of energy compared to the traditional installation made up of standard non- ... read more
