Solar Powered TRAX Stations Begin Operations

Press Release

May 31, 2013


Salt Lake City — Enphase Energy, Inc., and Sunlight Solar have completed a 68-kilowatt solar project on four UTA Airport TRAX stations from downtown North Temple to the Salt Lake City International Airport. Each station rooftop has 72 Enphase microinverters and generates enough power to fully operate all functions of the stop, including lighting, ticket machines and electrical outlets. The project is estimated to generate 90,000 kW hours of electricity annually.

“We are proud to partner with Sunlight Solar, and pleased to offer the Enphase Microinverter System to energize a light rail transit system supporting a major international airport,” said Paul Nahi, CEO of Enphase Energy. “Having provided our microinverter system to Sunlight Solar since 2008, we are excited to see Sunlight expand into commercial projects and look forward to participating in their future success.”

During the first week of operation, approximately 27,000 passengers boarded the Green Line extension that now ends at Salt Lake City International Airport, according to the Utah Transit Authority. Passengers at North Temple Bridge/Guadalupe, Jackson/Euclid, Fairpark and 1940 W. North Temple stations can observe total solar energy generation on 32-inch outdoor screens set to display the Enphase Enlighten monitoring website.

“We continue to choose the Enphase microinverter system for its performance, safety and monitoring software,” said Marc Staker, project manager at Sunlight Solar. “Safety was a primary concern for this project given the amount of passengers who will have access to the stations and having the AC come off the roof instead of high voltage DC lines was key in decreasing risk.”
