Western Wind and Lord Electric will deploy twenty 1.5 MW Equinox Prism Platforms to power the second largest PV plant in Puerto Rico. 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.
The factory integrated solution leverages Satcon's next-generation Equinox PV inverters with 98.5 percent peak efficiency, delivering performance and low installation costs enabling a low levelized cost of energy.
All Prism Platform solutions include EDGE Adaptive Control Architecture, enabling instant voltage stabilization, frequency control, and dynamic grid support.
