Suntech has passed a milestone of sorts with the shipping of its 10 millionth solar module, a Ud-series model that is used primarily for commercial and utility-scale electricity generation. It was manufactured in March 2010 at Suntech’s Wuxi, China facility. The purchaser of the module will be awarded a gift of Suntech solar panels for donation to a charitable cause.
Since the company’s inception, Suntech has shipped over 2.2GW of solar products to more than 1,400 customers in more than 80 countries.
“We have made great progress since founding Suntech in 2001. Our exceptional global track-record of solar installations is a key differentiator as we expand in both emerging and well-established solar markets,” said Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech chairman and CEO. “This is a major milestone on our mission to provide everyone with reliable access to nature’s cleanest and most abundant energy source.”
