Satcon will deliver 78 of its PowerGate Plus inverters to rooftop PV developer OZZ Solar. The 18MW of units will be deployed on commercial rooftop projects across the province of Ontario, and will be fully compliant under the Ontario feed-in tariff (FIT) program launched in 2009.

The 40 rooftop projects under development by OZZ Solar will use Satcon’s PowerGate Plus 250KW and 100KW inverters, customized for 600V (AC), which became generally available in January.

The Satcon inverters designated for this program meet all requirements mandated under FIT regulations and are specially designed to operate at full performance at temperatures as low as –40°C. In addition, the power boxes will be manufactured in Burlington, ON, making them the only large-scale inverter solutions that are 100% compliant with the Ontario FIT local content requirements.

“These installations mark the beginning of major growth for large-scale, grid-tied rooftop solar power plants in Canada and are a significant step in the implementation of Ontario’s FIT program,” said Jonathan Goldman, executive VP of OZZ Solar. “These projects required the most advanced, highest performing, and most reliable systems that could deliver reliable performance in the harsh Ontario climate. Satcon’s best-in-class solutions and their commitment to partner with us to drive value from the design stages over the entire lifespan of the project were the key factors in our decision to partner with them.”

“With these first set of projects, OZZ Solar is stepping to the forefront of commercial solar development in Ontario,” said Pete DeGraff, Satcon’s VP of worldwide sales and marketing. “With a long history of manufacturing world-class products in Ontario, Satcon is a proud partner in OZZ Solar’s commercial solar projects, and a highly committed local developer to the Ontario government’s commitment to clean energy production.”
