Projects: Lasalle Eco-center 4.2 kWp grid tie PV

 


Project General Information
Project location:
City of Montreal, Lasalle Eco-center
PV / Wind hybrid system
Date in service:
2011
Total power (kWp):
4.2 kWp
Type of system:
PV / Wind hybrid system
Description:

Ten years after designing and supplying Quebec's first grid tie solar photovoltaic (PV) & wind power system to the City of Montreal, Matrix Energy announces the completion of another renewable power project for the City.

The latest project was developed with partners Progemes Consultants (now part of Genivar) and Marc Morin Electrique for the City of Montreal's Ecocentre Lasalle. Matrix Energy assisted in the design and supplied a 4.2 kWp grid tie PV and two (2) Skystream 3.7™ wind turbines on 33 foot monopole towers for grid connection. The systems were installed in 2011.

The main benefit of a PV / Wind hybrid system is that, in most areas, they are complementary power sources from season to season. According to Natural Resources and Environment Canada, there are 5 peak sun-hours per day (avg) and a 3.6 m/s average wind speed during the summer in the Montreal area, whereas the region receives around 2.6 daily peak sun-hours and 4.75 m/s average wind speed in the winter. The PV system, featuring twenty (20) high performance Kyocera 210 Wp polycrystalline solar modules and a 4kW Fronius solar inverter, can be expected to generate approx. 4,900 - 5,000 kWh of clean, emissions-free electricity annually. Each Skystream 3.7™ wind turbine can be expected to generate approx. 1,500 kWh of clean, emissions-free electricity annually.
