Pinehurst MFG, a distinguished textile manufacturing company, is trusted with clothing production by world-renowned brands such as ADIDAS. The company now powers its operations using a solar system with SMA inverters.
Central American Clothing Manufacturer Decks Out Its Facilities with Solar Energy
Case Study from | SMA America
Speed, quality and efficiency are three ofÂ Pinehurst MFGâ€™s high standards. To improve its efficiency, the renowned sportswear manufacturer incorporated a solar system into its facilities in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
With these high standards in mind, the company entrusted this ambitious project toÂ Advanced Energy, a Central American company with more than 12 years of experience. Advanced Energy has positioned itself in the regional market as the most experienced and prestigious EPC, having installed more than 35 MW exclusively with SMA inverters in both rooftop and ground-mounted projects.
For this 1,687.2 KWp project, Advance Energy used 4,440 solar panels and 21 SMA Sunny Tripower CORE1 62.5 KWÂ inverters to achieve an estimated annual production of 2,500,000 KWh.
TheÂ Sunny Tripower CORE1Â is the worldâ€™s first free-standing string inverter for decentralized rooftop and ground-based PV systems as well as covered parking spaces. The groundbreaking new design allows up to 60% reduction in installation time and at the same time lowers the total cost of ownership (OPEX).
â€śAt Advanced Energy we design and build with SMA inverters, and after 15 years, we have corroborated time and time again that SMA manufactures the most reliable inverter on the market,â€ť said Alberto GirĂłn, director and CEO of Advanced Energy.
Through this solar system, Pinehurst MFG significantly reduces its energy costs and upholds its commitment to social responsibility by reducing its carbon footprint.

The farmer realized it would be more cost-effective and environmentally sound to begin sourcing their electricity from the sun. Impressively, the new solar system provides enough energy to irrigate 450 hectares (1,112 acres) of corn, oat and pastures for cattle ranching.
GRNE Solar recently installed a new solar system powered by SMA Sunny Tripower CORE1 inverters and monitored with the SMA Data Manager M at the headquarters of Spraying Systems, a spray technology company in Illinois.
A New Jersey family will no longer need gas-powered generators during outages. The installation of SMAâ€™s Sunny Boy Storage with Automatic Backup Unit in their residence will provide them with backup power â€“ and peace of mind â€“ during emergencies.
