Advanced Energy Industries Inc. says its Solaron PV inverters have been selected to power the San Francisco Sunset Reservoir 5 MW solar project. The project was awarded to Advanced Energy by Recurrent Energy, an independent power producer and developer of solar power projects.
Recurrent Energy will own and operate the solar power system, and is developing the project in partnership with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. The 5 MW solar plant is being constructed on the roof of San Francisco's largest reservoir, located in the city's Sunset district.
Construction is scheduled to begin this winter and is expected to be completed in 2010. Upon completion, the project will consist of 25,000 solar panels that span approximately 12 acres.
