Welcome to the Sunset Solar Roof Ecuador at the Colegio Aleman Quito

In April 2012 SUNSET Solar installed a solar thermal system, a grid connected PV-system, two solar street lights and a solar driven backup-system at the German School Quito to introduce the features and of modern solar technologies.

Thanks to the solar systems the school is able to cover a part of its energy needs in an environmentally friendly way.

The solar thermal system heats up water for the showers and and the swimming pool in the sports area.

The grid-connected PV system of 11.22 kWp (51 modules SUNSET PX 220-609 will be used to feed the sun’s energy into the schools power grid and lower the electricity cost.

The solar street lights with high efficiency LEDs of 20 W power consumption illuminate with 2400 lumens the schools schoolyard.

The PV backup system with a maximum power output of 2500 W and an energy capacity of 10 kWh works as a UPS for the electronic equipment of the school.

The project is implemented as part of the dena Solar Roofs Programme of the Deutsche Energie-Agentur GmbH (dena) - the German Energy Agency. It illustrates the advantages and possibilities of solar applications in Ecuador and showcases solar technology "made in Germany"- an innovative, high quality and sustainable technology.

The official inauguration with high-ranking guests of politics and business will take place on 31st of May at the German School Quito.

After Windhoek Namibia, Singapur, Shanghai (China), Kairo (Egypt) und Jakarta (Indonesia), Mugla (Turkey) and San José  Costa Rica the Solar Roof Quito, Ecuador is SUNSET´s eigth successfully implemented project under the framework of the dena Solar Roofs Programme.
