Solar Carport

An-Najah Naional University, partner of Med-EcoSuRe,  installed a 50 kWp PV grid-tied carport system at the university campus. This system not only provides additional energy but also serves as an example for architectural integration of Solar PV.

The solar car park, consisting of 105 photovoltaic modules of 465 watts and covering approximately 50 m2 , allows to fully charge up to 6 electric vehicles, and provides shade to 24 of parking spaces within the university.. It is expected to generate 85 MWh of electrical power annually.

The project is among many initiatives that support the University Climate Action Commitment and Sustainability Plan aiming to reduce global warming emissions in everyday campus operations.  Furthermore, the system aims to promote the transfer of knowledge and technology as a proof of concept for new innovative products and services. The results may be replicable in other urban and social contexts. 

The solar carport is monitored through SMA Sunny Portal which visualizes all yield data conveniently and concisely, and the live system status data. The system monitors also monitors the inverter performance, weather information, analyzes data and visualizes the performance using tables or diagrams daily, monthly and yearly.

The yields of all inverters in the plant are compared automatically, allowing the detection of even the smallest deviations.

The portal is a remote interface that allows the plant operators and installers to access key system data at anytime and anywhere.
