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."

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
