The government of Guyana, through the Guyana Energy Agency (GEA), continues with taking up the challenge of climate change by implementing environment-friendly renewable energy solutions. oursun Guyana, a joint venture of the Swiss-based clean energy provider The meeco Group, assists the government in this endeavour. After successfully completing the 43 kWp solar power rooftop installation on the State House in Georgetown in Guyana, meeco was contracted to equip 57 additional roofs of government-owned buildings with its clean energy solution sun2roof.
sun2roof is one of the most successful clean energy solutions of meeco, comprising of complete flexibility in terms of design requirements and customisable roof-mounted solar energy modules, a power inverter with an interface to meeco’s energy monitoring system sun2see and the possibility to connect the solar solution to the national grid. This environment-friendly approach enables G uyana a further step on the path towards a greener energy supply and a decreasing dependence on polluting fossil fuels, such as diesel and gas.
Further to the partnership with the government of Guyana, meeco has submitted a bid for an extension of the sun2roof system on the State House. Further 22 kWp grid-connected solar power are supposed to be installed within the next weeks. Moreover, a 45 kWh hybrid inverter and a 160 kWh energy storage facility are planned to be included as well. The hybrid inverter refers to an inverter/charger that is primarily used for grid-connected purposes but also has the added feature to provide backup power to the facility when the grid fails. The electricity generated from the sun2roof solar system will be used for primarily internal consumption and for recharging the batteries. The excess energy will be supplied to the national electricity grid. The project will also seek to demonstrate the applicability of photovo ltaic system operation with energy storage and its energy contribution to Guyana.
