CALGARY: Sustainable Energy Technologies Ltd. is teaming up with two other players in the solar power sector to market its SUNENERGY low-voltage inverters for residential and commercial markets, and provide a training program for solar dealers and integrators.

Mitsubishi Electric Sales Canada Inc., a Markham, Ont.-based a marketer of electronics, including heating and air conditioning and Voltaire Power Company Ltd., a Toronto-based integrator of solar energy systems, will collaborate with Sustainable Energy to provide solar power systems combining the SUNERGY inverter and Mitsubishi’s solar modules.

The training program will arm solar dealers and integrators with the necessary knowledge and tools they need to facilitate installations and develop and manage solar power projects using Sustainable Energy’s PARALEX system architecture throughout Ontario.

PARALEX (see video) enables solar photovoltaic modules to be wired in a parallel array that, when connected to SUNENERGY inverters, ensures fluctuations to not interrupt the flow of power going to the electricity grid.

“The Ontario market is ripe with opportunity for a variety of solar power projects that range from the residential to the commercial,” said Sanjay Razdan, president and CEO of Sustainable Energy, based in Calgary. “We’re confident that our collaboration with two innovative partners in solar—Mitsubishi and Voltaire Power—will not only be successful for our businesses, but in educating solar dealers and in advancing the adoption of solar power solutions across Ontario as well.”

The company also completed first deliveries of a one-megawatt purchase order from Photon Solar Ltd., a distributor of solar power products in Germany, for 200 SUNERGY 5 inverters.
