Satcon’s power solutions will be used to equip one of the largest PV installations in North America, scheduled to become operational in the third quarter of this year. As project leader, Q-Cells made the decision to deploy 20 of Satcon’s 1MW Prism power conversion systems in the approximately 20MW of large-scale installations, which are being implemented throughout Ontario.
The projects are under the auspices of the Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program and developed by the Ontario Power Authority. The plants will be connected to PUC Distribution, a local utility company.
“These are among the largest solar projects in Ontario to date. As such, it was imperative that we partner with an industry leader that could help us achieve the highest level of performance and reliability and one that can meet the upcoming domestic-content requirements,” said Boris Schubert, managing director, Q-Cells Systems for North America.
