IntiTech's smart grid solution empowers clients to produce their own energy

The Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE)’s pilot program that allowed its clients to connect their solar systems to the grid ended on February 6.

Now we must wait for the Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP) and the Environment Ministry (MINAE) to determine the new technical norms for grid connections. As a result, there is much uncertainty about investing in grid-tie systems in Costa Rica.

IntiTech’s smart grid solution empowers our clients to take matters into their own hands. Our smart grid system consists of solar panels, inverters and batteries.  The energy produced by the photovoltaic panels is consumed directly or stored in the batteries for night time use. You only use the grid as backup when both the panels and batteries are unable to supply sufficient energy.

In our plan you:

1)      Drastically reduce your monthly electricity bills.

2)      Don’t need to apply for a grid-tie permit from the energy provider.

3)      Don’t pay for changing to a two-way meter.

4)      Keep a percentage of your own photovoltaic production.

5)      Have a blackout backup of four or more hours.

6)      Have clean, uninterrupted, pure sine wave energy.

7)      Have no more power surge damage to your appliances.

8)      Have the option to connect to the grid in the future.

Come and see our systems at the Costa Rican Chamber of Commerce Fair,,

On April 16, 17 and 18th, at Pedregal, Belen, Stand #41.

No net-metering? So ICE will burn fo$$il fuel to run all those AC units when the Sun is shining. Just what Costa Rica needs, more dead batteries littering the countryside and poisoning the ground-water. Doesn’t the government understand this will hurt everyone who uses electricity, including companies that provide jobs? MINAE, ARESEP and Solís are not looking out for the people of Costa Rica. Couldn’t they sell the excess electricity and make rates lower for everyone?
