PWRstation is a Swiss company specialized in the development of photovoltaic installation technology associated with EXOrac. Its flagship product is a retractable system that solves some of the limitations of solar energy.
the Swiss company PWRstation has partnered with EXOrac for the development and manufacture of the new retractable solar rackingwhich have the ability to bring a whole new dimension to solar installations.
The goal is to provide pre-packaged hybrid power solutions that can power entire communities at breakneck speeds, including such technology-critical places as refugee camps, while giving them access to clean water, nutrition, health and education.
“Our business model supports local communities in their sustainable development and regional businesses to create jobs,” says PWRstation, noting that EXOrac-based solar microgrids can serve as stand-alone power sources or be combined with diesel generator sets to run in hybrid mode.
“And because EXOrac uses open architecture-based technology, our licensee and system integrators they can integrate any type of batteries, inverters and microgrid controllers»enlarge.
Advantages of solar retractable racking
The retractable photovoltaic system has two shelves capable of housing up to 30 solar panels in a container which allows for easy transportation. All this can be deployed by a single person, who also has the possibility of retracting, tilting and locking the panels depending on their production, cleaning or transfer needs.
According to the company, other benefits of the retractable system are:
- Installation process up to 16 times faster.
- It takes solar power generation where traditional fixed photovoltaic installations are not an option.
- Eliminate high initial capital investment, lease options.
- Relocate assets as needed.
The price of each shelf, made up of 15 light solar panels with a power of 375 Wp per unit (5625 Wp per shelf), is 6,350 Swiss francs, about 6,580 euros. PWRstation is also working on a rack of six solar modules called Veetoo, indicated for military deployments and semi-permanent installations, as well as for flat roofs of shopping malls, offices or even homes.
