Installation will be one of the largest in New Mexico and provide power to the surrounding communities.
Lawrence, MA - April 2, 2013 - Solectria Renewables, LLC, the leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, announced today that it has been chosen by Green States Energy, an independent power producer (IPP), to power a 2.5MW ground-mount PV system in Roswell, New Mexico. This PV system will be powered by Solectria's PVI 95KW line of central inverters.
"This installation will be one of the largest in New Mexico and provide power to the surrounding communities. As part of a retail program, power from our projects are used right in the local community we are proud to be a part of" said Stephen Clevett, CEO of Green States Energy. "We evaluated many inverter manufacturers for this project. Solectria Renewables' central inverters proved to be the most robust, reliable and efficient."
The electricity produced from the project will be sold to Xcel Energy, a local electric utility. Combined with its sister project that was installed in 2010, it will provide more than 9 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year to the community, enough to power approximately 780 homes. The CO2 emissions saved over the lifetime of the system are estimated to be 226,125 tons, and the SO2 emissions saved will be over 994 tons.
"New Mexico is a hotspot for solar production and Green States Energy is one of the largest independent power producers in the state," said Phil Vyhanek, President of Solectria Renewables. "We are pleased to be selected as the inverter manufacturer for this project. IPP's such as Green States Energy realize that our inverters provide them with the greatest ROI for solar installations due to their reliability, efficiency and bankability."
