China Sunergy advised that it had shipped 1.59MW of its solar panels to Emotion Energy, which has partnered with Edison Energy to install solar panels for 117 houses in a residential rooftop project in Faifley, Scotland for the Knowes Housing Association Scotland. The PV project will allow 117 Knowes tenants to partake in the energy generated from the solar panels free of charge for 25 years. The solar project was installed prior to the change in FiT on December 12.
Stephen Cai, China Sunergy's CEO, commented, “The UK is an important market, and we are very pleased to play our part in this very vivid example showing how solar energy can improve people's daily lives and keep them warm during this holiday season. We believe that by leveraging our superior product quality and word-of-mouth marketing by our various customers, China Sunergy can play a role in reducing fuel poverty not just in the UK, but across the globe.”
