Fresno, California [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] WorldWater & Power Corp. announced the construction start of a $402,482 solar electric system at the International Center for Water Technology (ICWT) at California State University. The rooftop photovoltaic (PV) system incorporates the company’s proprietary Aquamax technology that powers electric motors up to 600 hp at variable speeds operating on solar power alone.“The system will be a valuable teaching tool for students, but it’s much more than that,” said David Zoldoske, ICTW’s Director. “This advanced technology ties into the Million Solar Roofs initiative recently signed into law by our Governor and it will be used as part of a business incubator for entrepreneurs interested in starting companies in the fields of water and renewable energy.” WorldWater & Power Corp. is one of only two companies selected by the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) as a Preferred Solar Partner. WorldWater recently built the world’s first solar-powered pumping system at a water utility for California’s Idyllwild Water District. Also, WorldWater & Power just announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted the company a second patent application in one week for the “AC/DC Hybrid Power Systems.” The patent announced earlier this week was “Maximum Power Point Speed Control,” an invention that relates to the operation of AC motors and motor drives that convert power from a DC source — such as sun power — to AC, and operates the motor at maximum power as the power from the DC source varies. This brings WorldWater & Power to six patents issued and five pending.
