Satcon Technology Corp., a provider of utility-scale power-conversion products for the renewable energy market, has been selected by Q-Cells North America to supply an additional 40 MW of its Prism Platform products for the Starwood solar project in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.
The Starwood projects are contracted under the Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program (RESOP) developed and overseen by the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) and will connect to local utility PUC Distribution Inc. The combined 60 MW project, when complete, will be the second largest in North America, according to Satcon.
