Boston, May 15, 2012 — Satcon Technology Corp. a provider of utility-scale power conversion solutions, announced that it has been selected by GCL Solar Energy, to supply forty-five of their Equinox 500 kW inverters, along with more than 1,900 Satcon Solstice Subcombiners, 680 of its SSC Smart Subcombiners, and 64 medium voltage transformers, which will be used in the construction of a 76 MW solar power plant in the Caribbean.

The Equinox 500 kW is the next generation of Satcon's 500 kW solar inverter solution, which is used by solar developers on over a gigawatt of cumulative PV power systems.

With 98.5 percent peak efficiency and the industry's widest thermal operating range, Equinox solutions improve system-wide energy harvest and solar plant yield, enabling the large-scale solar industry's lowest Levelized Cost of Energy.

The efficiency gains will enable utility-scale plants to produce millions more kilowatt hours over the life of the system, and add millions of dollars to the bottom line of the plant owner operators.
