|Array Structure||Fixed: Ground Mount|
Sungrid monocrystalline silicon array, fixed ground-mount.
Monocrystalline cells are cut from silicon blocks composed of a single, pure silicon crystal.
Monocrystalline silicon panels typically achieve higher efficiencies than polycrystalline and thin film technologies. The cost per Watt, however, can also be higher due to the more complex manufacturing requirements of monocrystalline cells.
These Sungrid monocrystalline panels have been designed in a large size format so that fewer panels are needed for an array. This can reduce installation costs.
Sungrid is an Australian solar energy company that distributes high quality solar panels to customers around Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

Notes on the Data
Monitoring Interruption for UPS Battery Replacement
The disconnection and re-connection of the solar arrays and weather station equipment while a new site connection was being established prompted the already flattening UPS batteries which power the site’s energy meters to fail and require immediate replacement. Data recording was affected from approximately 2.30pm ACST, Monday 10 July to 4.00pm, Wednesday 12 July.
Affects weather data for DKASC, Alice Springs
