By Editors of Electric Light & Power/ POWERGRID International

Petra Solar, a global technology provider for the renewable energy, energy efficiency and distributed power generation markets, announced today that it has changed its name to Petra Systems. In addition, the company introduced a new smart city solutions for municipalities, transportation authorities and utilities.

Petra Systems will leverage the expertise developed over the past eight years as a core technology supplier to some the world’s largest mesh networked distributed power plants. Expanding the strategic focus beyond solar generation, Petra Systems will deliver intelligent, efficient, and remotely managed energy networks for smart city applications to be deployed by municipalities, transportation authorities and utilities.

In addition, Petra Systems introduced its newest product offering, the Petra Smart City Solution (Petra SCS), a fully integrated smart pole system that connects streetlight, energy generation, surveillance, data and communication networks to a city’s public works department.

“Electricity bills from streetlights are one of the largest expense line items for municipalities today, and cities recognize the benefits of LED retrofit programs to reduce their overall energy consumption,” said Steve Rhoades Petra Systems’ CEO. “We see an even greater opportunity to increase this value and strengthen smart city project economics through an integrated technology platform approach that combines the value of energy savings from LED retrofits and LED light controllers with the revenue generated by solar power production.

Petra Systems is a global technology provider for the renewable energy, energy efficiency and distributed power generation markets. With more than 200,000 installed systems worldwide, Petra Systems delivers reliable, cost effective smart energy solutions that intelligently power communities, cities, solar farms and grids.
