Xantrex Inverters Installed at 800-kW Solar Energy Plant in Spain

Xantrex Technology Inc. announced that its inverters have been installed by Grupo Enerpal for an 800-kilowatt (kW) photovoltaic (PV) solar installation in Brazatortas, Spain. This installation is the largest in Ciudad Real, a province of central Spain, in the southwestern part of the region of Castile La Mancha.

The eight Xantrex GT100E (100 kW) inverters, which meet both CE and Spain’s RD 1663/2000 requirements, will convert DC power from solar panels into high-quality AC electricity for delivery to the electrical grid. The installation is running at full capacity and has an equivalent output of approximately 1450 hours of sunlight per year, which will provide more than US $670,000 in annual revenue. The installation consists of 2256 monocrystalline modules TSM-175M (Enerpal-Trina) with 175 watts-peak (Wp) power each, divided into four installations of 100 kW, and 2208 monocrystalline modules TSM-180M with 180 Wp each, also divided into four installations of 100 kW. “We are pleased that the Xantrex GT100E was selected for this 800 kW PV plant in Spain,” said John Wallace, Xantrex CEO. “Our solar inverters perform extremely well in high temperatures, providing maximum energy harvest in countries like Spain or Italy, and in the state of California, where some of the most productive PV plants are located.”
