Oil and Gas Primer

As counter-intuitive as it might sound, the fossil-fuel industry—particularly oil and gas— depends on renewable energy to provide cost-effective, dependable electricity for mission-critical communications, data acquisition, metering, site security, and much more. For this reason, oil & gas operators have been significant customers for offgrid photo-voltaic (PV) solar electric solutions.

Working with some of the leading operators, the question often comes up as to what exactly does the Hazardous Locations (Class 1, Division 2 Groups A-D) Classification actually mean—and why should operators look for it when specifying off-grid solar-powered components and systems?
