North Carolina solar farm to use Solectria Renewables inverters

Argand Energy Solutions chose Solectria Renewables external transformer inverters to power the 2.3MW Franklin County Solar Farm on a 12-acre site in Louisburg, North Carolina, which has been under construction since June 2013. The solar farm is slated for completion by October 2013.

The power produced from the solar farm will be sold to Duke Energy under a 15-year agreement. The site will produce enough renewable electricity to power 352 homes annually.

Solectria Renewables will supply its SGI 500XT, 500 kW inverters for the project. The project is Solectria’s first utility-scale ground-mount solar energy system.

Over a 20-year period, the Franklin County Solar Farm will produce close to 63 million kWh of energy and offset 84 million pounds of carbon dioxide.
