Solectria Renewables has been awarded a contract to deliver its commercial inverters to 1st Light Energy for installation on 10MW worth of rooftop PV projects.
As part of the contract, Solectria Renewables will supply its PVI 60/82/95KW commercial inverters to 1st Light Energy which will install the equipment on the rooftops of Extra Space Storage facilities located across the US.
“1st Light Energy has used Solectria Renewables' residential, commercial and utility-scale inverters in various installations over the past five years,” said Justin Krum, President of 1st Light Energy. “In a project as large as this, we knew that we needed the best inverters in the solar industry. We chose Solectria because we find their warranties, customer service, performance and reliability to be what our customers are looking for.”
The PV installations are in line with Extra Space Storage’s strategy to reduce their carbon footprint by utilising solar to power their facilities. So far, PV has been installed at 45 of the company’s sites with an additional 58 currently under development.
All of the 103 sites will use Solectria Renewables' PVI 60, 82 or 95KW inverters. In total, the PV installations will generate more than 11.5 million kWh of solar power every year.
