ReneSola Ltd("ReneSola" or the "Company") (NYSE: SOL), a leading global manufacturer of solar photovoltaic ("PV") modules and wafers, announced it has been contracted to provide 460 kilowatts ("kW") of its high-efficiency solar modules to Cummings Properties, one of the most prominent full-service commercial real estate development and property management organizations in Massachusetts. The solar modules will make up the rooftop solar system of Cummings Center, a two-million square foot corporate campus and retail center in Beverly, Massachusetts. This is the second project for which Cummings Center has selected ReneSola modules. The first project, built last fall, was 530 kW, bringing the total contracted by Cummings Center to nearly 1 megawatt ("MW").
ReneSola will ship 460 kW of its 305 watt ("W") poly modules to Cummings Properties next month. Design and construction of the center's rooftop solar system, as well as the integration of ReneSola's solar modules, will be performed by Cummings Properties. To date, Cummings Properties has completed seven rooftop solar projects totaling approximately 1.5 MW, in addition to this most recent project.
"It's gratifying to win a single project, but repeat business is a true indicator of a manufacturer's quality, performance and service," said Kevin Chen, president of ReneSola America. "We're thrilled to be the supplier of this second installation for Cummings Properties, and we're certain they'll be just as pleased with this shipment as they were with the first. As a fairly new player to the U.S. solar marketplace, we're quickly gaining significance with several high profile projects, including that of Cummings Center. We are pleased that ReneSola is becoming a trusted name among the industry's most sophisticated and respected project developers and installers in the North and Latin America marketplaces."
"The service, support and logistics provided by ReneSola for Cummings Center's previous project were excellent," said Gary Gresh, sustainability manager of Cummings Properties. "We look forward to working with ReneSola as we continue our efforts to become a more sustainable operation through the implementation and adoption of solar power."
