Solectria Renewables to Power 45MW Entropy Solar Projects in North Carolina
Solectria Renewables, LLC, a leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, announced today that it will supply 69 SGI 500XTM's to Entropy Solar Integrators for seven projects in North Carolina.
These projects are part of a portfolio being built by Entropy Solar Integrators and financed through affiliates of Entropy Investment Management.
North Carolina has one of the most ambitious solar programs of any US state. SEIA/GTM Research ranked North Carolina #3 on the top 10 solar states in the U.S. in 2013. In 2013, North Carolina installed 335 MW of solar electric capacity and $787 million was invested to install solar for home, business and utility use. This represents a 156% increase over the previous year, and is expected to grow again this year.
The seven projects are slated to be commissioned by the end of 2014, and are anticipated to generate 1.1 billion kWh, enough to power up to 130,000 homes. The projects will be the environmental equivalent of planting 4 million full size trees (offsetting 77.8 million pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere).
"Entropy has a strong relationship with Solectria and we are looking forward to working with them on our North Carolina projects. Their ability to supply high-quality inverters and competitive pricing is essential for the continued deployment of low cost solar energy in the United States," said Clay Hartman, COO of Entropy Solar Integrators, LLC.
"Solectria Renewables is committed to delivering the best, most reliable, efficient and cost effective products to its customers. Our 1000 VDC, utility-scale inverters, the SGI 500 and 750XTMs, deliver this promise to all of our customers. These inverters were designed, developed and tested to the highest standards available today. We also value long-standing customer relationships like that of Entropy Solar Integrators and appreciate their trust and commitment to Solectria and its solar solutions," said Phil Vyhanek, President of Solectria Renewables.
