OCI Solar Power’s Vineland Solar IV project begins operation

Solar IV, the first solar plant in Vineland, New Jersey, has been completed and begun commercial operation. Vineland Solar IV, developed on 38 acres in Delsea Drive by OCI Solar Power, contains more than 13,000 PV modules and the project generates a total of 3MW. The energy is sold to the Vineland Municipal Electric Utility and will power local homes and businesses.

Vineland Solar IV is one of two OCI Solar projects in the area and the second project, Elmer Road, is anticipated to begin construction in the summer.

Nick Bullinger, chief operating officer for OCI Solar, commented on the project: “The completion of the Vineland Solar IV facility is another big step toward creating a more sustainable and green future for the Vineland community. It is the first of two projects for OCI Solar in Vineland and we are grateful for the community’s partnership and support. The second project on Elmer Road is expected to begin construction in early summer 2012.”

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
