China-based ET Solar Group Corp. has entered into a 1MW dual-axis
tracking system contract with Premier Power Renewable Energy, Inc. The
tracking systems, which were jointly developed by ET Solar Group and
Meca Solar, each boast a peak power of more than 11kW and will be
installed at a location close to San Francisco.
ET Solar will send 97 of the systems to Premier Power for completion of the project by the end of 2008. The annual power output is estimated at more than 2 million kWh, which, according to the company, is close to 40% higher than other fixed array installations in the same area.
“We are very excited to have our first large-scale tracking system project installed in the San Francisco Bay Area,” said Linhui Sui, Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of ET Solar Group. “We are proud to have the opportunity to work with Premier Power, a quality and leading PV system integrator, on this milestone project. It is an official recognition of our product, service, and engineering capability.”
