Renogy LLC—a Louisiana based solar panel manufacturer, is one of the two solar panels suppliers for Lamar Advertising’s “Renewable Louisiana” Project. Lamar and Renogy have begun with a 30KW installation, and look forward to a successful trial. Renogy solar panels will be incorporated onto many of Lamar’s billboards throughout the state, returning energy to the grid during peak consumption hours. “Incorporating Renogy’s products onto billboards containing LED lighting will definitely help Lamar save on energy costs. Besides, our products’ high PTC rating plus efficiency will allow Lamar’s billboards to solely rely on renewable energy”, said Yi Li, president of Renogy. “Our products are a perfect match for such a novel combination, and we are more than happy to participate in such a significant project that sets the bar for Louisiana’s green movement”.
(comment from TSEA: With the reduction of federal and state support of solar systems, the industry needs to look for the boutique applications that can take advantage of providing power to applications that are either isolated from the commercial power grid, or provide a more economical package that is free of monthly power bills. I will have a paper on boutique applications for paid members this month. The paper covers all vistas of potential applications of solar PV. We need to build our membership so join us and keep our organization going.)
