e-Cube Gen-2 - with simplified battery integration
As of May 2021, Clean Technology Partners (CTP’s) e-Cube has been selected for over 120MWp of solar farm connections.
CTP is pleased to release its second-generation e-Cube with advanced control and monitoring functionality tailored for grid connected battery and hybrid systems in the N.E.M.
Integrated manufacturing and testing with our sister company Clean Tech Controls, ensures quality, lead-times and price benchmarks are met.
The complete solution combines HV switchgear, protection, metering and local / remote monitoring and control and provides a “plug and play” utility interface for grid connected solar, battery and hybrid assets.
Simple, Easy & Cost Effective
The solution couples seamlessly with established central and string inverter packages and is pre-designed to meet the state and NSP specific requirements for grid connection. Coupled with its advanced control and monitoring capabilities, e-Cube Gen-2 is the right solution for today’s renewable assets.
With its advanced engineering capabilities, CTP can help complete the hassle-free development and implementation of your project with grid connection studies, HV engineering, plant design, commissioning, and testing.
