Santerno Solar Inverters Deliver Proven Performance at Solar Systems' Mildura Solar Power Station in Australia

Contract with Solar Systems Demonstrates that Santerno Inverters Designed for Optimal CPV Performance in Harsh Conditions Such as Arid Australian Outback.

IMOLA, Italy (July 25, 2013) -- Santerno, the Carraro Group company that specializes in alternative energy electronics and industrial automation, today announced the completion of installation of its concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) power inverters in the first phase of the Mildura Solar Power Station Project in Australia. The power station, located in Victoria, was constructed by Solar Systems, wholly owned subsidiary of Silex Systems Limited, and is to be one of the largest solar power stations in Australia.

By standardizing on the Santerno solar inverters, Solar Systems ensures that the Mildura Solar Power Station remains in compliance with Australian construction codes for solar systems. Santerno's solar components are being provided by NHP Electrical Engineering Products, which has been supplying sales and service of Santerno solar technology in Australia and New Zealand since 2003.

Unlike most solar power installations, Solar Systems uses a unique design that concentrates solar power using a parabolic mirror that focuses the sun's energy onto a focal point where a small area of high-efficiency PV cells then converts the solar rays into electrical power. These curved reflecting mirrors are mounted on tracking systems that follow the sun to deliver concentrated CPV energy throughout the day. Stage one of the Mildura Power Station project is a 1.5 MW demonstration solar array; enough clean energy to power 500 homes.

"Solar Systems' innovative tracking dish design is one of the most efficient PV designs we have seen, and it's installed in some of the harshest climates on the planet," said Marco Tecchio, Chief Executive Officer of Santerno. "The successful completion of this project demonstrates the resilience of our solar inverters and their suitability for use in even the most challenging environments. We anticipate that, with the aid of partners such as Solar Systems, we will be able to continue to expand into global markets, including Australia."

Santerno is aggressively expanding into new global markets with new contracts signed recently in South Africa and the United States.

How I Fell in Love Online Keynotes Dating Expo

Dating websites, Keynote Address, and Dance Party are featured at the Online Dating Expo, September 7, 2013, at the DoubleTree Hotel San Francisco Airport.

SAN RAFAEL, CA, USA (July 25, 2013) -- Contact: Tom Andrews, 415-507-9962

John and Loretta Gavin, creators of the new book Online Dating S*cks...but it's how I fell in love, will keynote the Online Dating Expo, Saturday, September 7, 2013, 7pm-Midnight, at the DoubleTree Hotel San Francisco Airport, 835 Airport Blvd, Burlingame CA.

"One of the biggest mistakes in online dating is having s*x too early," say The Gavins, (who barely avoided the mistake themselves). "Online dating makes getting dates EASIER, but falling in love HARDER. Among guys the ease of arranging dates online creates the mindset of 'Next...always next.' It then becomes difficult for men to be fully 'present' during any one date because of anticipation of dates to come. Men fall into the trap of making their goal to find dates rather than to find the right partner. As a result, women feel pressured to have s*x too early in the relationship, because they know this guy in front of them is likely dating other women as well. The result is lots of dates, but very few lasting relationships.

"It's important to find out if this person you're considering being intimate with is a good match for you," say The Gavins. "If you don't find out who they are, and if they're right for you, before parting the sheets-it can be too late afterwards. The point of online dating should be to find your LAST first date rather than your NEXT one."

John & Loretta Gavin, who recently married, are available to the news media for interviews by calling 209-202-4970. Their website is

The Online Dating Expo begins at 7pm with exhibits of leading dating websites. At 7:30pm, representatives of these websites will give a quick overview of the options they provide. The Keynote Address is at 8pm, followed by a Dance Party until midnight.
