EDF Energies Nouvelles company enXco has signed a deal with Suntech Power for the photovoltaics manufacturer to supply up to 115MW of crystalline-silicon solar modules in 2010. The EDF unit says the supply agreement will enable it to execute on its growing portfolio of rooftop and ground-mounted utility-scale projects in the United States and Canada in 2010.
Shipping timelines, specific project information, and financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“We are impressed with Suntech’s record of quality and innovation and are pleased to enter into this supply agreement securing Suntech as a partner in serving our utility and rooftop customers’ needs,” said Erik Ellis, director of enXco’s utility-scale solar division.
“enXco has built exceptional expertise in the development of renewable energy projects over the past 20 years, and we are very pleased to partner with them in the expansion of their solar business,” said Steven Chan, Suntech’s chief strategy officer. “Our commitment to continuously drive solar innovation and deliver the most cost-effective solar solutions is a key element of this new partnership. We look forward to building upon this agreement and working with enXco to promote a transition to solar energy and sustainable development in the United States.”
Two weeks ago, Suntech rolled out Reliathon, what it calls the industry’s first fully integrated utility-scale solar platform, which combines the company’s latest module innovations and a new utility- grade module warranty, as well as pre-agreed preferential pricing and business terms with industry-leading inverter and tracking companies.
