First with commercial systems and most recently in large utility-scale power plants.” said Pete DeGraff, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales, Services and Marketing for Satcon. “Satcon’s leading power conversion solutions continue to be deployed by the most respected developers in solar, and we are very proud to have been selected by GCL Energy for this project.”

The Equinox 500kW is the next generation of Satcon’s flagship 500kW solar inverter solution, which has been utilized by the industry’s leading solar developers on over a gigawatt of cumulative PV power systems.
