China-based PV manufacturer ReneSola has won a 53.5MWp module order for PV projects in Texas being developed by OCI Solar Power.
The modules will be used in OCI’s Alamo II project near San Antonio and another OCI project located to the west of the city.
The order from ReneSola comprises 178,000 of the company’s 300W polycrystalline modules.
Kevin Chen, president of ReneSola America, said: “We are pleased to be providing our high-quality polycrystalline modules to OCI Solar Power's project in southern Texas. This collaborative development reflects our steady growth in this region of the United States, as well as our growing relationship with this thriving project developer.”
Alamo II, which broke ground earlier this year, forms part of a 400MW project OCI is developing for local utility CPS Energy under a 25-year power purchase agreement.
The 4.4MW solar farm will sit on 45 acres owned by the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) near the organisation’s Upper Martinez waste water treatment plant.
Phase one of the Alamo project was completed earlier this year. The full project is due for completion by 2016, after which OCI said it would supply electricity to 10% of San Antonio homes.
