Solar (PV) Power Systems
Oil & Gas Solar
Solar (PV) Power Systems provide a reliable and proven source of DC power by converting sunlight directly into electricity. Solar (PV) Power Systems are a good fit for a variety of upstream, midstream and downstream oil & gas applications because they’re economical, require very little maintenance and have no ongoing fuel requirements.
Since the early 1980’s we provided hundreds of Solar (PV) Power Systems for the prime and backup power needs of critical applications in the United States and Canada. Our systems are configured for the specific geographical location and load demands of your application. Solar calculations and sizing is performed using the latest solar radiation data, surface meteorology data and software sizing programs.

Oil & Gas Applications
Over the years we’ve supplied Solar (PV) Power Systems for a variety of upstream, midstream and downstream oil & gas applications. We can supply systems for gas measurement, cathodic protection, valve actuation, field instrumentation/automation, remote communications, site surveillance and security and much more!
System Mounting Configurations
We offer a variety of mounting configurations to meet virtually any budget and/or site requirement. We also offer a range of site survey services to ensure your system is designed for optimum year-round performance.
System Components / Hybrids
We can provide the balance of system components for a truly “turnkey” solution; saving you time and resources by eliminating the need to source system components from multiple vendors.
High-quality MPPT Solar Charge Controllers, Relay Drivers, DC-AC Inverters and DC-DC Converters can be provided to complete our systems and come pre-wired and pre-assembled to customer requirements. For existing customers we can also provide replacement controllers. Contact us below.
Batteries play a vital role within your wayside solar power system. Faced with the complex charge/discharge cycling patterns imposed by the unpredictability of weather, batteries with high cycling capability should be used with solar power systems. We offer both Ni-Cd and LA.
Temperature extremes and unwanted exposure can place stress on critical battery systems. Our robust all-welded aluminum (steel construction also available) battery boxes are designed to shield and protect battery systems located in harsh outdoor environments.
Wind Turbines can provide supplemental power to solar power systems during periods of insufficient solar radiation. We utilize the robust SuperWind Wind Turbines (350W-1.2kW) which can operate under extreme conditions autonomously and automatically for improved reliability.
Solid Oxide Fuel Cells
Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) can provide supplemental power to solar power systems during periods of inclement weather and winter to improve overall system reliability. We utilize Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (250W-1kW) that are powered by propane or natural gas and automatically start when voltage is low.
Stirling Engines are capable of providing supplemental power to solar power systems during periods of inclement weather and winter months. We utilize PowerGen Stirling Engines (1.2kW to 5.6kW) that are powered by propane or natural gas and can operate automatically for 60,000+ hours!
