Solectria Renewables to power 45MW entropy solar projects in North Carolina

Seven solar projects anticipated to generate 1.1 billion kWh, enough to power up to 130,000 homes.

Solectria Renewables, LLC has signed a contract to supply 69 SGI 500XTM inverters to Entropy Solar Integrators for seven projects in North Carolina.1 These projects are part of a portfolio being built by Entropy Solar Integrators and financed through affiliates of Entropy Investment Management.

The seven projects are slated to be commissioned by the end of 2014, and are anticipated to generate 1.1 billion kWh -- enough clean energy to power up to 130,000 homes, according to Solectria Renewables. The projects will be the environmental equivalent of planting 4 million full size trees, offsetting 77.8 million pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere.

"Entropy has a strong relationship with Solectria and we are looking forward to working with them on our North Carolina projects," said Clay Hartman, COO of Entropy Solar Integrators "Their ability to supply high-quality inverters and competitive pricing is essential for the continued deployment of low cost solar energy in the United States."
