Satcon helps SCE generate more than 48 MW of solar power

Boston, October 11, 2011 — Satcon Technology Corp., a provider of utility-scale power solutions for the renewable energy market, crossed a milestone in Southern California Edison's Solar Photovoltaic Program by delivering over 48 MW of its PowerGate Plus 500 kW solution to date.

This, when combined with multiple projects with additional utilities, brings Satcon's sales for utility owned solar power generation in California to over 100 MW.

As part of the SPVP program, SCE plans to install, own and operate up to 250 MW of solar generating capacity over the next five years, of which Satcon was awarded 75 percent of the inverter capacities.

These installations will be constructed mainly on large commercial rooftops and some on parcels of open land, with most sites ranging from one to six MW of generation capacity in size.

SCE has selected Satcon's PowerGate Plus 500 kW inverter solution, the world's most widely deployed utility ready solar PV inverter. All of Satcon's solutions include advanced utility ready features to enable simplified grid interconnection and can be easily integrated into SCADA systems through standardized communication interfaces.
