October 09, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Northern Power Systems (NPS, Waitsfield, VT) announced that it has been hired to engineer, build and commission an advanced, solar-based, on-site power system for Artists for Humanity (AFH) new facility in South Boston. The custom-designed, 48kW, turnkey power system will gather clean, sustainable energy from the sun using an array of photovoltaic (PV) panels mounted on the building's rooftop.

Northern is currently working on the design of the PV system and will begin its construction in the second quarter of 2004, anticipating completion of the system in late spring. Northern will design, engineer,and install the rooftop systems, which will use ASE-300 PV modules. SMA Sunny Boy 2,500 ac inverters were selected to invert the solar-produced electricity from dc to ac.
