Satcon to supply 52.5 MW PV inverter solutions for Southern California solar power plant

Greentech Lead America: Satcon, a provider of
utility-scale power conversion solutions for the renewable energy market, will
supply 51 megawatts (MW) of its Equinox Prism Platform solution, a fully
integrated multi-megawatt medium voltage (MV) building block, along with 1.5 MW
of its next generation Equinox inverter systems for a solar power plant in
Southern California.

The Southern California installation will be will be one
of the largest solar power plants in the state. The plant will be
interconnected to the San Diego Gas & Electric (SDGE) grid as a Qualified
Facility for a Large Generator Interconnection Agreement (LGIA). The plant is
expected to go on line by the first half of 2013.

Equinox Prism Platform is a turnkey utility-grade
multi-megawatt solution, complete with factory-integrated step-up transformers,
MV disconnect switches, and power conversion electronics.

Satcon’s next-generation Equinox PV
 offer 98.5 percent peak efficiency and the
industry’s widest thermal operating range. Equinox PV inverters deliver the
highest levels of performance and low installation costs enabling the
industry’s lowest levelized cost of energy (LCOE).

Equinox enhances system-wide energy harvest and solar
plant yield, enabling the industry’s highest return on investment (ROI).
Equinox’s advanced utility-ready features enable remote control of real and
reactive power, low-voltage ride through and power factor control. The solution
supports fast communications, allowing it to be easily integrated into SCADA
systems through standardized communication interfaces.

Satcon to supply Equinox 500kW Inverters to GCL Solar

Satcon Technology recently received an order from
GCL Solar Energy, a polysilicon and wafer supplier and a top green energy
enterprise in China. As per the agreement, Satcon will supply forty-five of its
Equinox 500 kilowatt (kW) inverters, along with over 1900 Satcon Solstice
Subcombiners, 680 of its SSC Smart Subcombiners, and 64 medium voltage
transformers for the construction of a 76MW solar power plant in the Caribbean.
