Order Focus: Solectria Renewables partners with DCO Energy for 10.5MW PV systems in New Jersey


DCO Energy and Solectria Renewables will be teaming up for three PV systems in New Jersey with Solectria supplying commercial and utility-scale inverters for the three projects. This is not the first time the two companies have come together for a solar project. Earlier this year, Solectria provided 2MW of inverters to DCO for seven projects in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

The first of the three systems will be a 6MW project on 45 acres in Seabrook Farm, New Jersey. Over 27,000 solar panels will be used with the construction being split into two phases. The first 3MW phase has already begun with an estimated completion date sometime at the end of this year. The second 3MW phase will begin in the spring of 2011. Solectria will be delivering 12 SmartGrid Inverters with an approximated 8 million kWh of energy produced per year.

“Solectria Renewables was an exceptional partner for the City of New Brunswick projects supplying greater than 2MW of inverters. These projects required the most advanced, reliable and highest performing systems deliverable. Solectria Renewables’ SmartGrid Inverters [SGIs] are the best utility?scale inverters we have tested and the team at Solectria Renewables is extremely dependable,” said Frank DiCola, president of DCO Energy.

The second PV systems will be a ground-mounted 2.5MW system at South Jersey Industrial natural gas storage facility in McKee City, New Jersey. The project will be connected to the grid at SJI’s natural gas facility with around 3 million kWh of energy produced per year. Construction is expected to start in the first quarter of 2011 with Solectria supplying four SGI 500kW’s, one SGI 250kW and two PVI 95kW inverters.
