Project Focus: Evergreen Solar 5MW plant in Apulia, Italy is now online


Evergreen Solar’s 5MW power plant in Apulia, Italy is now online. The project, which was designed and installed by project developer Greenvision, is the largest installation of Evergreen Solar panels to date.

The project has a total surface area of 100,000m2 and uses 24,600 Evergreen Solar ES-A series string ribbon solar panels. It will provide enough electricity to power approximately 2,400 homes in the region. The solar power plant is funded by Enia Solaris, a joint venture of two Italian-based companies, Enia and Ata Group.

“This is a milestone project for Evergreen Solar as we continue to expand our company’s global footprint with the largest installation in company history,” said Scott Gish, Evergreen Solar’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Italy is an important and growing market for solar power because of the country’s high amount of sunlight. Our solar panels are particularly well liked as they deliver the most electricity with the smallest carbon footprint of any silicon-based panel.”

“The Apulia solar park was our highest-profile project in 2009,” said Carlo Ghiglieni, project manager for Greenvision. “We chose Evergreen Solar panels for this installation because of the product’s reputation for having one of the best power tolerances and its proven reliability.”
