Solectria Renewables and NexAmp, Inc. Deliver PV System for Renowned Construction Supplier, Boston Sand & Gravel

LAWRENCE, Mass., December 11, 2008 — Solectria Renewables announces the completion of a 109kW PV system by NexAmp, Inc. at Boston Sand & Gravel, located in Charlestown, MA. This project utilizes Solectria Renewables' premium efficiency and American-made 95kW grid-tied inverter and fused string combiners.


Boston Sand & Gravel, a leader in the ready mixed concrete and aggregate industry in Massachusetts since 1914 and a foundation of metropolitan New England, is the first to install a solar project over 100kW in Boston. The project was boosted by Governor Deval Patrick's Commonwealth Solar and Mayor Tom Menino's Solar Boston Initiative. The installation was done by NexAmp, Inc., a turnkey clean energy solutions company located in North Andover, MA.

"This installation marks an important step for the city of Boston and the state of Massachusetts" says James Worden, CEO of Solectria Renewables. "The solar components - inverter, combiners, PV racking and PV module - are all manufactured in the United States, and the installer is a Massachusetts-based company. Solectria Renewables is pleased to be a part of this historic installation."

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
