RNRG delivers SRA system to Panama project
Renewable NRG Systems (RNRG) announced the supply of solar resource assessment (SRA) system to Ventus Ingeniería to reduce solar irradiance uncertainty at a project in Panama. The complete SRA solution, delivered on a turnkey basis, deployed in the Chiriquí Province, near the city of David, Panama, includes 2 Hukseflux SR11 First Class pyranometers, which are designed for finance-grade SRA campaigns. The accurate estimation of a prospective solar farm’s annual energy production (AEP) is instrumental for developers to secure adequate financing terms. Over the past few years, the routine collection of site-specific solar resource data has quickly become standard practice in the utility-scale PV solar industry. “We are seeing a significant interest for solar resource assessments in the region, due to the benefits of output uncertainty reduction, which in turn increases project ROI,” said Cecilia Correa, the project manager for Ventus Ingenieria.
