National Solar Power has entered an agreement with solar manufacturer SolarWorld, in which SolarWorld will supply National Solar Power with several millions of solar panels for the company’s projects in Florida. The aim is to build projects totaling 700MW.
National Solar Power is constructing a 400MW project in Gadsden County, a 200MW project in Hardee County and a 100MW project in Liberty County, Florida. Each project will be built on sites of about 200 acres in size and in 20MW segments. The first project, Hardee County, will commence construction later this year.
“SolarWorld looks forward to being a partner in this far-reaching and visionary project,” commented Kevin Kilkelly, president of SolarWorld Americas. “National Solar Power is a recognized innovator, and its projects in Florida are truly exciting developments in the renewable-energy supply for our nation.”
