Telecom towers

Improve bottom line by 20-40% by using proven Schneider Electric telecom towers solution.

Solar Solution for:


Reduce diesel costs by more than 35%

  • Reduction in diesel consumption
  • Decreased diesel generator maintenance
  • Lower transportation cost of diesel to the site
  • Harvest solar energy to lower your energy bills

Reduce CO2 emission by more than 10 tonnes a year per site

  • Contribute to the society by undertaking green initiatives to reduce green house gas emissions


Telecom towers may operate in regions with an unreliable grid or no grid supply while the others operate in regions with a stable grid supply but face high electricity costs. Schneider Electric offers proven solutions to cover both of these needs. In areas with an unreliable grid or no grid supply, Schneider Electric’s Conext XW+ inverter/chargers and MPPT solar charge controllers can be added to your current system to help you reduce your diesel consumption. Conext XW+ battery-based telecom solution includes:


  • High amps charging capacity with PFC (Power Factor Correction)
  • Two AC-source inputs with built-in transfer switch allowing direct wiring to two AC sources (i.e. grid and diesel generator or two diesel generators)
  • Pure-sine AC output with high surge capacity to start heavy loads of air-conditioners
  • Modular and stackable design to support wide system sizes: both 1-phase and 3-phase
  • Easy and seamless integration with solar to reduce diesel costs

In areas where the telecom towers are connected to the stable grid, Schneider Electric’s Conext CL grid-tie inverters allow you to integrate solar to help you reduce your dependency on the grid and lower your energy bill, especially during peak load hours. Conext CL grid-tie telecom solution includes:

  • High conversion efficiency
  • Broad operating range to harvest more energy
  • Proprietary shade tolerant MPPT algorithm designed to minimize the effect of partial shading on the energy output
