I sure would hate to see the price tag for those bad boys. I would be interested to see the anticipated return on investment figures though.

Building occupant is keeping the dollars, cents, and KWHr solar production info close to their chest.

I'll follow up as permitted.

John,


Are they generating at 120/240 or 277/480 volt?
The 2 big PV systems I saw one was gen 400 amps and 480 volt 3 phase. The second one will gen 600 amp at 240/208? when it is done.

Harold:

These are 277/480 volt units. I'll check the file for the design info when I get a chance. As I said above, this was a landlord install, and they are keeping the data close to their chests.

The units are rated 260 KW each @ 277/480
