Petra Solar Starts Shipments for PSE&G (New Jersey)

Metallic blue solar photovoltaic modules embedded with sophisticated power management and communications systems began rolling out of Petra Solar`s headquarters and manufacturing plant in South Plainfield, NJ this month.

PSE&G and Petra Solar recently entered into a contract, valued at $200 million, which requires Petra Solar to deliver approximately 200,000 SunWave intelligent PV solar units for installation by PSE&G plans for installation on poles in its service territory, which includes the state`s six largest cities and some 300 rural and suburban communities.

"Petra Solar`s solar photovoltaic solutions enable utilities to maximize the value of their existing resources in innovative ways," said Petra Solar President and CEO Shihab Kuran. "With Petra Solar`s SunWave technology, they use existing utility poles to host solar units, creating a distributed system of power generation throughout their service area."

He noted that the SunWave systems not only turn the poles into solar generators but can also communicate with the electric grid and can offer smart grid capabilities. The systems can improve grid reliability through real-time communications between solar generators in the field and the utility control center. In addition, the Petra systems can enhance electric distribution grid reliability through a host of capabilities such as voltage and frequency monitoring and reactive power compensation.
