Chinese manufacturer ReneSola is supplying its micro-inverters, string inverters and mounting products to a company in Pakistan.
The company specialises in thermal and renewable power generation management in Pakistan, India and Africa, although full details of the order were not disclosed.
Pakistan is currently an emerging market using scheduled blackouts to deal with energy shortages, which have reportedly been met with local protests. Electricity demand in 2010 was 20584MW, supply was 15055MW according to Air University in Islamabad.
Pakistan has very high levels of solar radiation up to 6.2KWh per square mile, and recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Europe and China for a 150MW solar plant near Faisalabad in Pakistan to deter further blackouts.
ReneSola already provide PV modules to India and aims to continue branching into the South Asian solar market, it said.
Xianshou Li, ReneSola's CEO, said: “We look forward to contributing to Pakistan's developing solar infrastructure.”
He added that Renesola’s inverters and mounting products would help to “drive sales in the emerging markets of South Asia”.
