The temple's planning committee decided to use renewable energy to lower energy costs and spread a positive message to society about building a better environment for future generations.
However, rooftop space on the historic site is limited and presented challenges. The temple is surrounded by trees as shown in the aerial photo in the top right. In addition, it has a unique crown of spires that border the roofline, posing numerous shading challenges for the PV system.
The temple gets a lot of visitors and the floor needs heating during the winter, so the power consumption is relatively high during that time period.
The client wanted a reliable PV system that would minimize the impacts of shading and mismatch in order to maximize energy output.
The installer, Go Run Solar chose Tigo TS4-A-O optimizers to minimize the impacts of shade from the trees and the roof. The Tigo optimizers are connected to each module on the roof and install in only about 10 seconds per module.
The site also uses 70x Longi 370-watt PV modules and a 20 kW Fronius string inverter.
Tigo’s solar industry leading Flex MLPE (Module Level Power Electronics) gives installers the freedom to choose their preferred inverters and panels along with the right features for optimized, monitored and PV safe systems.
