Santerno, Carraro Group Business Unit, has received the green light to supply a complete energy conversion solution for the Mount Signal Solar project 1, in Imperial Valley in Southern California.

According to the terms of the agreement, Santerno will supply a series of 1.5MW plug & play stations, complete with inverters, medium voltage transformers and remote control systems, for a total value of more than 25 million $.

"In addition to the economic importance of the agreement – commented Enrico Carraro, Chairman of the Carraro Group – this is a historic moment for our company entering the highly potential U.S. Utility Scale Market with a dedicated line of products which has already been appreciated by Santerno's market leading partners in Europe over many years. The penetration of the U.S. market and other similar international initiatives confirm the global development plan of Santerno, with a strong focus on increasing its market share in the markets of tomorrow."

"These kinds of excellent commercial agreements, along with the ongoing rapid development of the product portfolio further strengthen the position of Santerno in the global market and provide a solid foundation for further growth already in the short term", concluded Enrico Carraro.

The "Mount Signal" Solar Project 1 is a 265MWp single-axis tracker solar PV project, under construction along the border of Mexico in Imperial County, California. The Mount Signal Solar project 1 will produce approximately 500 million kWh per year (equal to an annual consumption of 65,000 homes in San Diego, CA) and will save approximately 365,000 tons of CO2 per year, equivalent to the absorption of 15 million forest trees.
