Ijika Solar Solutions showcased their proficiency by completing the projects within a timeframe of just two years. The installations were executed with precision and attention to detail, showcasing the company's commitment to timely delivery without compromising quality.

All installations were seamlessly integrated into the iSolar cloud or Solar Edge monitoring systems, enabling real-time performance tracking and analysis. This monitoring system ensured that the solar installations consistently operated at peak efficiency, allowing for proactive maintenance and issue resolution.

Ijika Solar Solutions gained valuable insights from these projects, especially concerning the balancing of production between transformers to ensure optimal utilization of solar energy. This knowledge further solidified their expertise in handling complex installations, setting a precedent for future endeavors.
