Air Products revealed its selection of Blue Sky Solar for the installation of silicon tandem thin-film PV panels from ENN Solar and Astronergy, both Air Products customers. Blue Sky will be the turnkey installer with the help of Newkirk Electric Associates who will provide the mechanical and electrical construction for the project.
“Air Products’ SunSource Solutions provide photovoltaic manufacturers with the ability to improve their production and drive down their costs-per-watt, bringing them closer to the goal of grid parity,” said David Tavianini, worldwide PV marketing manager for Air Products. “Air Products is pleased to see the US solar market continue to expand and is proud to be building one of the largest silicon thin-film installations in the country.”
Air Products additionally revealed that the solar system size at its US headquarters in Allentown, Pennsylvania, has grown from 1.5MW to 2MW and will have construction started this fall with installation occurring in the spring.
