Solectria Renewables Delivers Over 8.5MW Commercial and SmartGrid PV Inverters in Massachusetts

Lawrence, MA - November 9, 2010 - Solectria Renewables, LLC, the leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, announced today the delivery of over 8.5MW Commercial (PVI 60-100kW) and SmartGrid (SGI 225-500kW) PV Inverters for projects across Massachusetts.

In October 2009, requests for proposals (RFP) were released for projects in Massachusetts including:

• 4.1MW for the Massachusetts solar stimulus utilizing American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds for 12 state-owned water/wastewater facilities
• 2.1MW for the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) for 11 state owned buildings
• 2.5MW for 3 National Grid landfill photovoltaic systems

In the first quarter of 2010, EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) contractors were chosen for each of the RFPs. All EPC contractors chosen for these RFPs selected Solectria Renewables'
Commercial or SmartGrid PV Inverters. Solectria
Renewables recently delivered the last of the SmartGrid inverters for these projects. Solectria Renewables has been supplying PV inverters for Massachusetts residential, commercial and utility-scale solar projects since 2005. In 2009, only 3.5MW were installed in MA. It is projected that 60MW of solar power will be installed in Massachusetts in 2010.

"Federal stimulus funds are helping the Commonwealth to lead by example, installing nearly 4 megawatts of solar capacity on 23 state-owned facilities across Massachusetts, while contributing to rapid growth in our clean energy economy," Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs, Ian Bowles, said. "Governor Patrick set Massachusetts on a course toward a clean energy future four years ago, and companies such as Solectria Renewables are thriving as a result."

"As the Patrick-Murray administration's bold clean energy policies play out across Massachusetts, our state is on track for a 20-fold increase in solar power by the end of 2010 compared to four years ago," Department of Energy Resources Commissioner, Phil Giudice, said. "Companies such as Solectria Renewables are the Commonwealth's partners as we continue to develop a robust, nation-leading solar industry."
