Off-Grid Energy Solutions for a Remote Chicken Processing Facility

Objective

In a pioneering move for the poultry industry, a chicken processing facility has adopted an off-grid, 3-phase solar energy system to operate independently of the traditional power grid. This initiative uses Sol-Ark's advanced technology to provide a reliable and cost-effective power solution. Located in a remote area where grid connection is prohibitively expensive, the facility needed an efficient and robust power solution.

Solution

The decision was made to install twelve Sol-Ark 15K inverters, paired with a 148-kW solar array, and a 240-kWh lithium battery storage system, which ensures continuous, reliable power. The inclusion of a diesel generator as a backup safeguards against any potential disruptions, providing additional resilience.

Project Overview

  • Location: Remote Area, Belize 
  • System Components: 12 Sol-Ark 15K Inverters, 148 kW PVdc Solar Panels, 240 kWh Lithium Battery Storage, Diesel Generator Backup 
  • System Capacity: 180kWac output with 240 kWh Lithium 
  • Solar Array: 50 kW Pvac 
  • Backup Generator: Yes 
  • Application: Complete off-grid operation for chicken processing
