Sustainable Energy To Deliver 240-MW of Sunergy Inverters for Ontario Solar Market

Sustainable Energy Technologies Ltd. has begun taking orders for its Sunergy line of inverters, that will be manufactured in the Province of Ontario. The company’s products meet the Ontario “domestic content” requirements and the company expects to produce 40 megawatts (MW) of inverters in Q1 2010 with an expansion to 240 MW to follow

“Sustainable Energy’s inverters incorporate patented technologies that are Canada’s most significant contribution yet to expanding the use of solar power around the world,” said Robert Bucher, president and CEO of Sustainable Energy. “For the first time, the superior performance, intrinsic safety, and design flexibility of parallel system architecture is available at a competitive price. With high conversion efficiencies, the SUNERGY technology is what the industry needs to lower costs and propel solar power into the mainstream.”

The Sunergy inverter has been specifically designed with Canadian outdoor installations in mind. It is one of the only inverters that will deliver full power all day with ambient temperatures ranging from -40°C to +60°C, eliminating the need for enclosures or indoor mounting.

RenewableEnergyWorld.com’s Graham Jesmer caught up with Sustainable Energy’s Brent Harris at Solar Power International to talk about the Sunergy product as well as the company’s paralell stringing technology and how it expects its products to be used in the North American market.
