PITTSBURGH — Power management company Eaton will showcase a broad range of critical solutions at Intersolar North America 2014, from July 8-10, in booth #8321, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Eaton’s solar photovoltaic (PV) and energy storage electrical balance of system (BOS) solutions are making cost-effective, safe and reliable solar generation a reality for utility and commercial customers. Eaton is also in contention to win the annual Intersolar North America AWARD for its work on the Hyder II Solar Power Plant in Arizona.
“Eaton’s innovative solutions and technical expertise are helping maximize the potential of renewable energy production and minimize grid disturbances, ” said John Vernacchia, global segment manager for renewable energy at Eaton. “Our extensive equipment portfolio is supported by a global network of engineers, who bring extensive skills and expertise to help customers sustainably energize a world that demands more.”
The annual Intersolar North America AWARD program recognizes solar projects demonstrating the latest in innovative system technologies and design.
