ST. LOUIS — Manufacturing and tech firm Emerson will supply utility-scale power inverters for two solar energy projects run by California-based Quanta Power Generation. The inverters, which convert DC power into AC power, have the capacity to produce 70 megawatts of power combined.
Quanta Power Generation, Inc., a subsidiary of Quanta Services, Inc., will place Emerson power inverters directly on an electrical grid used by homes and businesses.
“We expect these two facilities to help boost the local economy by creating jobs and clean, renewable power,” said Mike DonMoyer, President of Quanta Power Generation, Inc. “Emerson’s innovative inverter technology, commitment to service and dependability made the company a logical choice for the project.”
The larger of the two plants, located about 60 miles southeast of Fresno, California, and with capacity to generate 50 megawatts of power, is estimated to be complete by the end of the year. The smaller plant will have capacity to produce 20 megawatts with anticipated completion in October. The projects are owned and being developed by two project company subsidiaries of GCL Solar Energy, Inc., a leading global solar power producer. GCL selected Quanta Power Generation to provide the engineering, procurement and construction services for the project.
“Emerson is pleased to be expanding its portfolio of solar energy projects in California,” said Mark Bulanda, who serves as world leader for Emerson’s solar and wind energy initiatives.
