Canada’s vast Northwest Territories encompass large areas of forests, lakes and tundra. Howell Mayhew Engineering developed a telecom PV system on the top of a mountain at Wolverine Creek near Great Bear Lake. The system included 60 Conergy 260-W multicrystalline-silicon modules and six Morningstar 600-Vdc ground-fault protectors and charge controllers.
