Emerson has secured a contract from Wind Turbine & Energy Cables Corp (WTEC) to supply utility-scale power inverters for a 30MW solar plant in Webberville in the US state of Texas.

The power project, which is developed and owned by Fotowatio Renewable Ventures, is expected to begin operation by the end of this year.

WTEC is an electrical subcontractor for Renewable Energy Systems Americas (RES Americas), which is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the Webberville solar plant.

Electricity generated by the facility will be sold to US-based power utility Austin Energy for 25 years under a power purchase agreement.

Emerson’s power inverters convert DC power from solar arrays into AC power, which is placed directly on the electric grid.
