Satcon provides solar inverters to China

Satcon Technology Corporation will provide 150 megawatts of its 500kW solar PV inverters to GCL Solar Limited. It will begin supplying the inverters in April, with all deliveries scheduled for completion in October of 2010.

This deal marks the second phase of Satcon's partnership with GCL that was established in 2009, linking two of the industry's most innovative renewable energy suppliers and developers.

Satcon's 500kW units will be used on multiple utility scale projects across China and will build on the already successful collaboration between the two companies, which includes the 3MW and 20MW power plants completed in December of 2009, China's largest rooftop and ground mounted installations respectively.

"The foundation of China's large scale photovoltaic industry has been firmly established over the past year and the market is now entering its next phase in both project sophistication and scale," said Dr. Gu Huamin, General Manager of GCL Solar Limited. "As we move forward the balance between technology innovation, system stability, and overall system efficiency becomes paramount to the successful integration of solar power onto China's national grid."
