GRIDSERVE® develops best in class ‘SEC12’ plug and play hybrid solution that eliminates installation and maintenance challenges
Hybrid energy innovator leverages unique modelling capability to forecast up to 95% opex reduction
Hybrid energy can deliver transformational opex savings in telecom, but advanced solar power systems are notoriously difficult to install and maintain. In response to some tough lessons learned in Nigeria, GRIDSERVE has developed a genuine plug and play solution that could push out maintenance visits from monthly to every 18 months. To understand the origination and specification of the unique 12kW(dc) Solar Energy Centre (SEC12), TowerXchange spoke to GRIDSERVE’s CEO – APAC Heston Harper.
