Costa Rica

A brief review of Costa Rica’s solar market outlook

Costa Rica, a Central American country, has achieved impressive renewable energy capacity in recent years. In 2019, the nation’s renewable energy share hit 99.15%. Looking at this renewable energy share capacity, one may assume that its solar capacity is equally impressive. Unfortunately, that assumption is inaccurate.

Solar market share statistics revealed that Costa Rica’s installed solar capacity stood at 5.4 Megawatts at the end of 2019. This figure accounts for only 0.08% of the Central American nation’s cumulative energy capacity. Any solar expert will agree that this is a severe course for concern.

However, things are looking up for Costa Rica’s nascent solar market. In June 2021, the Costa Rican government commenced bids for a large-scale photovoltaic project to power two municipalities. This move indicates a newly-found desire to support and build the Central American country’s emerging solar market. Looking forward, solar installers and other photovoltaic professionals should expect limitless opportunities in Costa Rica’s emerging solar market.

Solar equipment production and supply capability in Costa Rica

 As I mentioned above, Costa Rica is an emerging solar market. Still, the nation’s solar equipment production and supply capability is something to smile about. Several equipment manufacturers and distributors serve the nascent Costa Rican solar market. Do you need a trustworthy equipment supplier?

If the answer is yes, the Solarfeeds family has got you covered. Our website gives you access to leading solar equipment manufacturers serving Costa Rica. The sole task you need to undertake is going to the website’s inquiry page and request quotes.

Costa Rica’s ports and logistics services

Before venturing into any solar market, you must first consider the ease of accessing equipment. This means you must be able to import equipment if the need arises. Well, Costa Rica boasts of several sea ports that allow entry of goods from overseas markets. The country also has a healthy logistics services network that permits the safe transportation of equipment locally.

Power Optimizers

What are Power Optimizers for Solar Inverters?

Power optimizers are additional devices used in Solar Power generation to convert DC to DC (that’s right, not a typo, DC to DC). Power optimizers tune the performance of individual panels in the Solar power plant. 

Optimizers are required because the photoelectric effect does not produce the same energy in all the panels equally. Factors like the shading of panels due to clouds and dust can result in non-uniform distribution of power.

What are the types of Power Optimizers for Solar Inverters?

Module-level Power Optimizer: Power optimizers at each module level optimize the energy distribution to negate the effect of peculiar conditions.

Sometimes the panels don’t operate at the optimal power efficiency. In that case, the module measures the maximum power point tracking. MPPT helps to optimize the DC characteristics to get the maximum possible power output.

In Solar Power plants, the panels get connected in series. Therefore the reduced output from a few panels can lead to the reduced power output power of the whole system. 

Sometimes up to 50% of power is lost. Power optimizers become critical for not only optimizing the output DC power. But also save the system from power loss of up to half of the capacity.

How do the Power Optimizers for Solar Plant work?

Large Solar plants face an efficiency dip in power production and delivery of the power to the load. Solar Inverters convert DC to AC for the consumers. 

The DC input to the inverters is not consistent without an optimizer. Power optimizers use maximum power point tracking to make the DC power output from panels optimal.

This optimal DC power is fed to the Solar Inverters to get the efficient flow of current at optimal levels. Smaller DC voltage is hard to convert into AC voltage. Power Optimizers are necessary, especially for big Solar power plants.

What are some top brands of Power Optimizers for Solar Inverters?
