Stable, scaleable and reliable solar applications.
Solar power systems are used to provide power for industrial oil & gas sites across Canada. In some cases, these locations are remote and do not have access to traditional power sources. Solar is a popular choice for oil field drilling, pump station monitoring, and oil pipeline monitoring where remote monitoring is necessary. Charge Solar carries C1D2 and NEMA4 rated products for use in hazardous locations
Power for hazardous locations.
The global demand for energy over the next two decades is expected to increase dramatically. This increase in energy demand is expected to pose a major challenge for energy companies, particularly oil and gas companies. This is due to diminishing conventional oil reserves around the world, and increasing dependence on heavy crude oil, which requires significantly higher energy to produce and process.
The use of solar energy resources by the industry will save significant amounts of oil and gas resources, freeing them to meet the energy demand for other applications locally or internationally. At the same time, reducing the environmental impact of the industry.
Electrical energy is used in the oil field for different applications, such as submersible pumps, water purification, water pumps, lighting, and other electrical applications. In remote areas that have no access to power from the grid, their power requirements are often met using diesel generators. However, with today’s prices of solar energy, the economics are in favor of solar when compared with diesel generators.
Remote power applications.
Reliable wireless communication has become so popular around the globe today than in any other time in history. Improved quality of service and cost reduction are important issues affecting this industry. In order to serve a growing demand for connectivity, telecom towers are increasingly being constructed in remote locations where the grid is unreachable.
With many telecom network sites located in remote areas where no grid access is possible, or access to the grid is unreliable, alternative power sources such as solar makes sense.
The telecom industry relied on diesel generators to power their towers—but as we know—diesel generators don’t run as expected, are very costly to maintain and emit greenhouse gasses. Today, companies believe that solar powered telecom towers are capable of transforming the industry due to their low cost, reliability, and environmental friendliness.
