Quanta Renewable Energy Services and Ryan Company have chosen Satcon Technology’s Prism Platform to equip its 10MW PV plant in Cumberland County, New Jersey.
Ten 1MW Prisim Platforms will power New Jersey Oak Solar PV Power Plant, which will be the largest non-utility owned solar project east of the Mississippi when it is completed later this year. The system will also be fitted with Satcon’s Equinox inverters and Spectrum remote site controller.
“The New Jersey Oak Solar project will be one of the United States’ most advanced solar power plants,” said Michael DonMoyer, president of Quanta Renewable Energy Services. “This project showcases the future of large-scale solar power production, both in system-wide performance as well as remote power plant control. Over the past three years, we have worked with Satcon to successfully deliver many of North America’s most sophisticated and highest-performing utility-scale solar plants.”
“The Oak Solar project demonstrates the next generation of utility-scale solar power plants in North America,” added Steve Rhoades, Satcon's president and CEO. “Through a combination of system design and technology innovation, we are able to achieve significant improvements in system wide performance, providing for the industry’s lowest levelized cost of energy while at the same time enabling rich utility control over the solar asset itself.”
