ReneSola UK agreed to supply 22 MW of its high-efficiency polycrystalline Virtus I and Virtus II solar modules for use in two ground-mounted, utility-scale projects in the United Kingdom.
The two projects include a 10.8MW Low Carbon project in Bottom Plain, Dorset and a 15.6MW Cofely GDF Suez project in Bilsham Farm, Arundel. To maximize efficiency, the solar farms will use both 250W and 255W modules, which were manufactured by ReneSola OEM facilities outside of China.
Ian Glover, general manager of ReneSola UK, said, "It's great to work with Low Carbon again and a real pleasure to bring on a new partnership with GDF Suez, while also doing our part to tackle the issues of climate change and UK energy security. We anticipate high demand for our modules over the next two quarters and have been working with our OEM partners to ensure stock will be available for all EPC contractors rushing to complete projects before anticipated changes in UK solar policy."
John Cole, chief investment officer of Low Carbon, said, "Renewable energy technologies have demonstrated substantial performance improvements and efficiency gains and are now being deployed at significant scale. One of the key aspects of all our investments is ensuring high-quality solar technology is used to maintain our drive for reliable performance and ultimately stable returns for investors. We look forward to working with ReneSola on the Bottom Plain project."
