Solar photovoltaic inverter manufacturer Solectria Renewables announced it will supply SMARTGRID Inverters for seven solar projects in Massachusetts. The company's inverters are helping the state meet its renewable energy target of 1.6 gigawatts of solar power by 2020 and was selected by Innovative Engineering Solutions, Inc. (IESI) for 22 MW of these solar projects. 

"Solectria Renewables is a nationally recognized producer of quality inverters," said Richard McCarthy, director of energy services at IESI. "Not only are its products highly reliable, but the company also continues to evolve its inverters' efficiency and capacity to meet their customers' needs."

Massachusetts met its previous goal of reaching 250 megawatts of installed solar power in 2013 - four years ahead of schedule. The state has numerous solar projects in the pipeline, including sites at the Grafton Water District. 

"We are honored to be a part of IESI's solar portfolio," Phil Vyhanek, president of Solectria Renewables, said in a statement. "The SMARTGRID inverters selected for these solar projects will help IESI and its customers achieve maximum power production and system reliability."
