SatCon PV Inverters Installed at U.S. Government Facility

SatCon Technology Corporation announced that its PowerGate commercial grade photovoltaic (PV) inverters have been installed as part of a 375-kilowatt (kW) building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) system at the Murphy National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) building in Waltham, Massachusetts.

The NARA facility demonstrates a completely integrated roof and solar system. The flexible, flat panel PV array is heat-welded into the roofing material and qualifies as a “Cool Roof” under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s EnergyStar program. Solar Integrated Technologies, Inc. provided the building’s 143,000 square feet of integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) roofing system. To date, SatCon has shipped more the 30 MW of its industry leading commercial grade inverters in North America. “SatCon is pleased to have been selected to supply the inverters for this PV installation at this U.S. government facility,” said Clemens van Zeyl, President, SatCon Power Systems. “Our PowerGate Inverter series, ranging from 30 kW to 500 kW, continues to gain acceptance as the power conditioning system of choice driven by market leading efficiencies, simplicity of design and ease of installation,” he added. This is the second large commercial installation in Massachusetts using SatCon Inverters. Late last year, PowerGate inverters were used in the largest solar energy system installation in New England, a 425-kilowatt photovoltaic system located on an environmentally remediated brownfield (brightfield) in Brockton, Massachusetts.
