For most remote telecommunications sites with loads above 1500 watts, the cost of providing a portion of the power generation requirement with PV becomes prohibitive. Also, diesel gensets operating continuously are often wasteful of fuel and maintenance and repair costs. TeleCycle systems eliminate all PV components and operate methodically using intelligent system controllers to efficiently operate the gensets for short bursts of time.
