With the cooperation of Hoymiles (Microinverter) and BlueSun Energy LLC (EPC company), the first McDonald's restaurant in Kiev (Ukraine) has gone solar.
The newly-built restaurant in Kyivska street is the first McDonald's in Ukraine to have solar panels installed on its roof, with 14 units of Hoymiles MI-1200 and 9 units of Hoymiles MI - 600 microinverter and 74 panels, total 30Kw solar PV system. The system is expected to produce 43800 kilowatt-hours across the year, or approximately 120 kilowatt-hours per day, offsetting a significant portion of the restaurant's electricity usage and lowering electricity bills. More importantly, PV solar power is one of the greenest and cleanest energy so far, a good way to offset part of the restaurant's non-renewable energy consumption, in compliance with McDonald's goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to address the challenge of global climate change.
The PV solar station is mainly using Hoymiles 4 in 1 microinverter MI-1200. It offers a module-level in-parallel solution, integrated with extremely low DC input voltage (16-60V, compliant with NEC 2017 for module-level rapid shutdown), module-level monitoring & dual module-level MPPT, which 100% ensures the safety of both installers & end users.
