Power Partners MasTec has chosen Solectria Renewables to provide its Megawatt Solar Stations (MSS) for MasTec’s 5MW True North solar farm in Salisbury, Massachusetts. The companies noted that the solar farm will be the largest solar installation in New England and the first direct-to-grid farm in the state.
“We evaluated several inverter companies for this project. We found Solectria Renewables to be the best overall choice due to superior technical solutions, personalized service, and their knowledge and experience with large scale direct-to-grid projects,” said Kevin Taylor, group president of MasTec Renewables. “Solectria Renewables also had the lowest cost per installed watt and highest efficiency products of all the inverter manufacturers evaluated.”
Five MSS’s were chosen for the project. Four stations will be 1MW with the fifth at 759kW. Each MSS is skid mounted and includes a factored wired 22.9kV medium voltage transformer and switch gear to connect the inverters directly to the grid.
