Twenty Five Solar Installations in Greece to be provided by Satcon

Satcon Technology Corporation said that it has been selected by EasyPower S.A. to supply 2.5 MW of solar power on the island of Rhodes, Greece.

The solar power plants will be developed and constructed by EasyPower S.A. The installations will be owned by EasySolar S.A., RNA Power S.A., and Diachrisi Iliakis Energeias S.A. and will supply 100 kW of solar PV power across 25 installations.

At present, the island's power is made by diesel generators which can produce up to 194.4MW during peak demand periods. Rhodes' energy consumption surges during the summer months as the population of the island swells by three hundred percent. The solar installations will provide critical peak demand support, enhancing grid stability while delivering cost effective renewable energy for the population in addition to supporting the island's year round base load demands.

Each plant is composed of Satcon's PowerGate Plus solutions, combined with two-axis trackers and high efficiency monocrystalline modules and could generate in excess of 225,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) annually.
