Satcon selected for large scale solar energy installations across Ontario

Boston, June 9, 2010 — Satcon Technology Corp., was picked by Q-Cells for multiple large scale solar photovoltaic power plants in Ontario. Once completed, these projects will rank among the largest solar PV installations in North America.

Q-Cells will deploy twenty 1 MW Prism solutions, Satcon’s fully integrated utility platform that comes complete with factory integrated medium voltage transformers, switchgear and electronics.

Each 1 MW Prism solution is delivered complete in an all-climate outdoor enclosure and ready to connect to the PV array and utility grid, enabling rapid installation through a modular prepackaged design.

These projects are contracted under the Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program developed and overseen by the Ontario Power Authority and will connect to local utility PUC Distribution, Inc. They are scheduled to be operational in the third quarter 2010.

Introduced in June of 2009, Prism is the industry’s most advanced 1 MW solar PV power conversion system and is built on Satcon’s PowerGate family, the world’s most widely deployed large scale inverter solutions, with hundreds of millions of grid connected kilowatt hours delivered to date.

Satcon is a provider of utility scale power solutions for the renewable energy market. For over 24 years, Satcon has designed and delivered the next generation of efficient energy systems for solar photovoltaic, stationary fuel cells and energy storage systems.
