Clearline Solar Solutions, a division of Clearline Protection Systems is developing solar power systems. Clearline installed the first totally solar powered system which provides continuous power to cellular phone towers. The first installation was of behalf of MTN and is situated at its Kaalfontein tower. The installation has allowed the mobile phone operating company to take its tower completely off the electrical grid and operate its system independently, saving not only operating expenses, but also being more risk averse by not being susceptible to possible power interruptions. One of the unique features of this system is that the solar panels track with the arc of the sun thus maximising the sun’s power source. The system output generates over 40 kilowatts per day and is designed in such a way so as to only dispense sufficient power to keep the site fully operational.
The patented design and delivery system ensures that power will be available to the user for 24 hours per day. As the system can be monitored remotely through a GSM link, the integrity of the system is visible 24/7. Intelligence which can be gathered and recorded through remote monitoring include:
* Power usage.
* Condition of battery.
* Temperature throughout installation.
* Condition of instrumentation.
