The solar technology, which will be manufactured at Siemens West Chicago plant, will include inverters, transformers and containers, and will feature a major technology advantage by using 1000VDC inverters along with 1000VDC panels for maximum energy harvesting.

The Siemens solar solution will include Siemens Sinvert photovoltaic (PV) inverter technology in a multi-unit cluster design. Siemens Sinvert PVS solar inverters are integrated within environmentally controlled and air-cooled containers to ensure that output demands are delivered for the expected 20-year lifespan of the PV solar power plant. The design also provides one of the lowest Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE).
Additionally, Siemens’ leading IGBT technology-based inverters will deliver efficiency greater than 98 percent. Through the proven cluster design, these inverters enable higher outputs during regular operations. With less sunlight, excess inverters are automatically switched off so that the work load can be distributed more efficiently over the remaining inverters to produce the maximum possible amount of current for the power network. Siemens SINVERT PVS solar inverters ensure grid-compatibility, efficiency and safety.
The Murphy Flats project will also feature Siemens PV-WinCC SCADA software, offering high-level monitoring, integration of processes and automatic, on-site or remote monitoring for complete communication, control and visualization the solar power system.
