ABB Indonesia is an integral part of ABB Group, the global leader in power and automation technologies. Located in Tangerang, the factory is rapidly growing. ABB decided to have solar panels installed to cut costs spent on electricity as well as to showcase how their inverters work to visitors and customers.
On 27 July 2012, Contained Energy successfully mounted a 10 kWp system to power a portion of the facilities used in the factory. It is a grid-connected system consisting of fifty-seven 180 Wp panels on the roof of ABB factory, coupled with three of ABB’s own cutting-edge technology inverters which make the whole system efficient.
The on-grid photovoltaic system helps reduce electricity bills through day time peak-shaving.
