Abound Solar and Solar Integration Systems India (Solarsis) revealed that they had commissioned a 1MW solar PV plant in Kadiri, Andhra Pradesh, India on January 14. The project was commissioned under the Rooftop and Other Small Solar Power Generation Plant (RPSSGP) scheme managed by IREDA under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM). It is the first project in the state of Andhra Pradesh to use Abound’s CdTe thin-film modules.
“India is a key market for Abound Solar due to our US-made CdTe panel’s excellent performance in India’s climate, our commercial focus over the past two years and our successful use of US Export-Import Bank financing. We have a significant installed base in India and see this growing in 2012,” said Craig Witsoe, president and CEO of Abound Solar. “Solarsis is a good partner for us, offering project and local industry expertise.”
