Emerson is partnering with electronics contract manufacturer Sanmina-SCI to build solar power inverters at Sanmina-SCI's Ottawa, Ont.-based manufacturing facility. This will enable Emerson to fulfill Ontario's requirement that technologies used in renewable energy projects be built in the province.

Emerson's inverters convert DC power from photovoltaic arrays into AC power that can be placed directly on the electric grid. Production of the inverters will begin this year and may also serve solar energy projects throughout North and South America.

"Emerson is committed to providing high-quality technologies and services to the renewable energy market in Canada, and we are pleased to expand our capabilities in Ontario through this partnership with Sanmina-SCI," said Mark Bulanda, president of Emerson's Control Techniques business and leader of Emerson's solar and wind initiatives. "We selected Sanmina-SCI based on the company's proven record for quality and because its decades of experience in manufacturing complex technologies matches our long-term experience in renewable energy innovations."

"Solar energy is a strategic initiative for countries worldwide and is an important growth market for Sanmina-SCI," said Tom Clawson, executive vice-president of Sanmina-SCI's Industrial Markets. "Emerson's market leadership in the solar energy industry, combined with our proven expertise in producing complex, large-scale industrial products, will help meet the rapidly growing needs of Ontario's feed-in tariff alternative energy program."
