Early Field Trial Highlights
US Department of Energy’s Solar Energy Research Centre
The US Department of Energy’s Solar Energy Research Centre in Colorado, along with Florida State University’s Solar Research Centre at Cape Canaveral were involved in early trials of the product.
General Fertilizers PTY LTD (A division of ICI Chemicals)
General Fertilizers Pty Ltd (a division of ICI Chemicals) conducted several field trials using the MAXIMIZER™ on Remote Area PV Solar Water Pumping Systems resulting in an 100% increase in the volume of water pumped. These trials demonstrated the enormous benefit this innovative, first-of-its-kind device could have on the farming and agricultural industry.
ARCO Solar (Owned by the Atlantic-Richfield Oil Company)
ARCO Solar (wholly owned by the Atlantic-Richfield Oil Company) – the largest manufacturer of Photo-Voltaic Modules in the world at the time – endorsed the MAXIMIZER™ thanks to its revolutionary performance and benefit to the global PV industry.
Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E)
Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) California, the fifth largest power utility and responsible for the largest Photo-Voltaic test program in the world (sponsored by the US Department of Energy). PG&E’s testing had stalled because of the absence of any device that solved the problem of Maximum PV Power Extraction – until the advent of AERL’s MAXIMIZER™.
