The company today announced it has been selected by Western Wind and Lord Electric to supply 30 megawatts of its Equinox Prism Platform solution, a fully integrated multi-megawatt medium voltage building block, optimized for utility-scale photovoltaic installations. Western Wind and Lord Electric will deploy twenty 1.5 megawatt Equinox Prism Platforms to power the second largest photovoltaic plant in Puerto Rico.
The Equinox Prism Platform is a turnkey utility-grade multi-megawatt solution, complete with factory-integrated step-up transformers, disconnect switches, and power conversion electronics.

This delivers the highest levels of performance with low installation cost, giving it the industry's lowest levelized cost of energy.
All Prism Platform solutions include EDGE Adaptive Control Architecture, enabling instant voltage stabilization, frequency control, and dynamic grid support. This architecture secures the continuous operation of the photovoltaic plant in the event of ground faults and achieves the performance guidelines established by the German Association of Energy and Water Industries.
