April 27, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

Eaton Energy ManageEaton provided electrical distribution equipment, engineering services and solar inverters for a 6.3 MW solar installation at CentraState Medical Center in Freehold, New Jersey. The PV array will generate more than 8 million kWh annually to help the nonprofit health organization offset about 25 percent of its total electrical usage.

KDC Solar selected Eaton for the project. The installation is fully financed by KDC Solar with CentraState Medical Center purchasing the power produced through a power purchase agreement (PPA).

The ground mounted PV project incorporates Eaton’s Power Xpert 1500 kW inverters and Eaton’s Cooper Power series Envirotran direct-coupled transformers, which are designed to help increase electrical resiliency in large commercial grid-connect applications. Eaton also provided engineering services, including arc flash analysis and coordination studies.
