Solectria Renewables Introduces New PVI 50-100kW Inverters with the Highest CEC Efficiency in the Solar Industry

Solectria Renewables' New Commercial Inverters Achieve 97.0% CEC Efficiency and 97.5% Peak Efficiency

Lawrence, MA - September 11, 2012 - Solectria Renewables, LLC, the leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, announced its new commercial 50-100kW inverters today at Solar Power International, the industry's largest, most comprehensive solar energy event in North America.


The new commercial PVI line has five inverter power levels, including 50, 60, 75, 85 and 100kW. The premium efficient models have the highest peak and CEC efficiencies in the industry. Solectria Renewables continues to focus on enhancing development, reliability and efficiency to guarantee our customers and future customers the features they seek from solar inverter products.

"As the leading U.S. PV Inverter manufacturer, Solectria Renewables continually focuses on innovative engineering, reliability and attaining leading efficiencies," Michael Zuercher-Martinson, Chief Technology Officer at Solectria Renewables said. He continued, "As we expand our product lines, we will continue to develop the most reliable, efficient and technologically advanced inverters."

The complete new line of inverters feature a fully-integrated design with a user-interactive LCD. Options include fused subcombiners, forward facing disconnects, stainless steel enclosure, Solectria Renewables' recently redesigned and improved web-based monitoring, built-in cellular connectivity and air intake filter.

The PVI 50-100kW inverters are also available with built in SMART GRID/utility options such as intelligent communications, real power curtailment, reactive power control and voltage and frequency ride through. Solectria Renewables has been developing these features in partnership with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), Detroit Edison, National Grid and Xcel Energy as part of the DOE's SunShot Initiative.

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.
