This co-op member was so happy with his existing CCEnergy system that he asked us to double the energy production. CCEnergy located modules that not only fulfilled their new energy goals, but that also provided the closest visual match possible to the modules on their existing ground-mounted system. To avoid having to rewire the entire system, CCEnergy proposed replacing their two inverters with one. As a bonus, CCEnergy sold the customer’s inverters on EBay to help them offset the cost of the new one. This installation supports all of sustainability’s three Rs in terms of both energy consumption and equipment utilization.
