Energy Production Simulation for SunMine

In November 2012, EcoSmart asked BEW Engineering of San Ramon, California to conduct an independent energy forecast of the SunMine. BEW is part of DNV KEMA, headquartered in Arnhem, Netherlands with operations in 30 countries; its core business is risk and performance evaluation of clean energy projects worldwide ($258 million net sales in 2011).  BEW San Ramon is DNV KEMA’s global Centre of Excellence in solar energy, power transmission and grid integration for renewable energy.
Using PVsyst software, BEW simulated the energy production of SunMine with a Vertical Axis System. The projected first year energy delivery to the grid (conservatively accounting for additional losses of 2.7% beyond those modeled in PVsyst) is 3,891 MWh for a 2 MWp DC system or 1945 hr/a
