420 MW(!) Solar Project For Japan To Use ReneSola Solar Panels

ReneSola Debuts 300 W and 305 W High-Efficiency Poly Modules at SPI

ReneSola earlier this week announced that it has been selected to supply 420 megawatts (MW) of solar panels for a (huge!) solar power project in Japan. (For a little bit of perspective, the largest “solar PV power project” currently in operation is a 600 MW project in India, while the second-largest is going to be 397 MW when it is complete.)

“ReneSola’s Virtus II 300W 72-cell high-efficiency polycrystalline PV panels will be installed in over ten ground-mounted power plants in the mountain regions of Japan, and will provide power to the surrounding residential homes,” the press release stated.

“We are pleased that this project enables us to grow our presence in Japan, one of our target markets,” Mr. Xianshou Li, chief executive officer of ReneSola said. “Our local sales office is supporting our growth amidst the increasing demand for solar products in Japan. ReneSola is committed to producing high-quality cost-competitive products, and we will continue to expand our presence in new markets in the coming years.”

Shipments of the solar panels are supposed to start this month and are projected to go out as needed through December 2015.
