The join Hanwha-SUNLIGHT project comprises off-grid PV systems for the provider's 15 base stations in mountainous regions of Cyprus, providing clean energy and replacing the previous diesel-powered generators. In total, the telecommunications company will not only save 142,500 liters of oil per year, but also 370,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions.
The Hybrid Power Systems to be utilised in the project combine renewable and conventional energy sources and integrate 31.7 kWp of Hanwha Q CELLS Q.PRO PV modules. How it works: the systems use solar energy to power the telecommunications provider's base stations and also integrate the premium range of SUNLIGHT OPzV solar batteries.
The is the first project implemented by Hanwha and SUNLIGHT since signing strategic agreement. "We see great potential in off-grid energy solutions worldwide with Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean as especially promising regions - mainly for telecommunications and residential applications," said Stefanos Latinos, commercial director for stationary batteries, energy projects & service solutions, SUNLIGHT. "Together, we are able to provide the two major components of Hybrid Power Systems: batteries, from SUNLIGHT's premium RES batteries portfolio, and solar panels, which are Hanwha Q CELLS' expertise."
