Side-by-side Photovoltaic Comparison Study

Georgia Power takes the lead in a side-by-side photovoltaic comparison study

  solar georgia power Ervan Hancock, manager of Georgia Power’s renewable and green strategies, says they plan to have seven Solar module technologies mounted on their roof all with the same orientation to the sun to see which of them will perform best.  “ We’re monitoring metering on the DC side first because there’s optimization in the inverter side, but we want to see what the total power generated would be for each of those panels, at the same angle and the same relative position,”

  Kyocera, Sunpower, and Sanyo HIT crystalline-silicon modules and Uni-Solar amorphous-silicon thin film laminates are the first of the PV technologies to be installed, soon Suniva an Atlanta based company will install it’s (c-Si) cells. First Solar will be installing it’s newest cadmium-telluride (CdTe) panels soon as well, and after certification MiaSol’e will be providing it’s copper-indium-gallium-(de)selenide (CIGS) modules to round off the group.

Elizabeth Philpot, principal research engineer for the project points out that most of the data for PV is generated in the West and not the Southeast, we need to know how these panels will perform in the more diffuse light conditions we have here.  Real-time performance information will eventually be available to the public on a kiosk in the lobby of Georgia Power’s corporate HQ, as well as an online link.
