Energy Conservation and Demand Management


In August of 2013 the City of Quinte West entered into a Project to construct a Solar Farm on the roof of the Frankford Arena.  This Solar Project was completed and the City took ownership in January of 2014.

The system installed is a 255.92KW DC system with distributed architecture using sixteen (16) Fronius 12kW inverters.  Distributed architecture allows for multiple inverters rather than one sole inverter serving the entire project.  The main benefit to this approach is that multiple inverters improve system stability and energy efficiency.  The project LEAD was REAL-FLEX in partnership with Cleave Energy.

 The System Consists of:

Solar PV Modules: 914 X Heliene 60M 280W Panels
Inverter Type: 16 X Fronius 12kW Inverters
Racking:   HB Solar; North Roof - Vicerack
HB Solar; South Roof - Skyrack
Finial DC Nameplate Capacity: 255,920 watt
Peak Output: 192 KwP
