Petra Solar opens solar and smart grid control center


According to the U.S.-based company, NOC facilitates global, 24/7 grid monitoring and remote management of its virtual solar power plants from its New Jersey headquarters.

"The launch of Petra Solar’s Network Operations Center further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to solar and Smart Grid technology leadership and international expansion," commented Shihab Kuran, Petra Solar president and CEO.

"With our state of the art NOC, we have the ability to remotely operate and monitor our SunWave systems and positively impact grid reliability around the world. Petra Solar’s engineers will be managing our systems on a 24/7 basis, continuously collecting critical data to provide premier service to our global utility customers."

In a statement, Petra Solar added that the center also features a team capable of managing software applications for very large distributed deployments of SunWave systems over a wide geographic area. "These Smart Grid management software applications offer our utility partners grid reliability and operational benefits that go beyond solar," it said.

The company has also opened a showroom demonstrating its SunWave units mounted on wood, concrete and aluminum utility and streetlight poles.
