RAACH SOLAR becomes authorized partner of SMA

RAACH SOLAR signed with SMA SOLAR TECHNOLOGY AG a partnership agreement which qualifies RAACH SOLAR as dealer and installation company for grid connected PV systems and as PV systems with battery storage technologies. The partnership program of SMA offers several advantages such as regular trainings on new product releases, support in after sales service and lists RAACH SOLAR as official partner on the website of SMA. RAACH SOLAR went through a qualification process by an intensive training on SMA inverters and their data communication for remote monitoring.

“We install turn-key photovoltaic systems in Germany and we can offer this experience for our international customers. Germany is not the largest PV market anymore in the world, but certainly the one with the highest quality standards” added Jürgen Raach.

Keynote at WIPRO energy workshop in Dresden

This year’s Energy-Workshop’s was held under the title „Despite the global crisis, Africa’s energy potential is growing“ hosted by Mr. Bob Hooda from WIPRO GmbH. The traditional annual meeting brings together stakeholders from Africa and Europe to network and to identify business opportunities. Mr. Jürgen Raach presented the project “100kW AC Mini Grid in Sierra Leone” which the company implemented in 2016. The AC mini grid supplies a school compound and a nearby village with clean photovoltaic power. For the water supply a GRUNDFOS SQF submersible pump was installed coupled with a GRUNDFOS DEA booster station to increase the water pressure for the water distribution system. A GRUNDFOS AQtap water prepayment meter manages the water distribution to single families and school members. “RAACH SOLAR implemented a very complex project, an independent three phase AC grid with a large battery storage and an independent water supply from a borehole, to pump, boost, distribute and manage the water supply. This is a business model for independent power producers and water supply companies” presented Raach.
