Satcon to supply Equinox 500kW Inverters to GCL Solar Energy

By Greentech Lead America: Satcon Technology, a
provider of utility-scale power conversion solutions for the renewable energy
market, has 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.

 “We’ve seen demand for solar PV continue to grow in
the Americas over the last two years, first with commercial systems and most
recently in large utility-scale power plants. Satcon’s leading power conversion
solutions continue to be deployed by the most respected developers in solar,
and we are very proud to have been selected by GCL Energy for this project,”
said Pete DeGraff, executive vice president of worldwide sales, services and
marketing for Satcon.   

The Equinox 500kW is the next generation of Satcon’s
500kW solar inverter solution, which currently was utilized
on over a gigawatt of cumulative PV power systems. Equinox 500kW offers 98.5
percent peak efficiency and the industry’s widest thermal operating range.

Satcon claims that Equinox solutions will improve
system-wide energy harvest and solar plant yield for best-in-class performance,
enabling the large-scale solar industry’s lowest Levelized Cost of Energy

With this efficiency Equinox solutions will enable
utility-scale plants to produce millions more kilowatt hours over the life of
the system and save millions of dollars to the bottom line of the plant owner

Satcon teams with Sanmina-SCI for manufacturing solar inverters
for the Ontario feed-in-tariff program

Recently Satcon entered in to a strategic manufacturing
agreement with Sanmina-SCI, an electronics contract manufacturer, to
manufacture its solar inverter solutions in order to comply with Ontario’s
Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) program. As per the agreement, Sanmina-SCI will
manufacture Satcon’s PowerGate Plus 50 kilowatt, 100 kilowatt, 250 kilowatt,
