PV project developer, SPI Solar, is to undertake EPC work developing more than 20MW of commercial-scale rooftop systems in Sheyang City, and Suzhou Industrial Park, both in Jiangsu Province, China.
“Entry into these agreements is an important phase in SPI’s continued expansion in Jiangsu Province, one of the most important DG markets in China,” said Xiaofeng Peng, Chairman of SPI. “We believe that SPI’s foothold in securing these DG projects will herald further market share gains of SPI’s DG [distributed generation] business platform in China.”
SPI Solar said it would provide EPC services in Sheyang City totalling 13MW on one rooftop, with construction starting in December, 2014 and grid connection expected in early 2015.
The company is also planning to lease from the Suzhou Industrial Park Government Authority a rooftop site of 180,000 square meters in Suzhou Industrial Park, which will see SPI Solar China build and own more than 10MW of DG projects. Project development and construction is expected to begin in 2015 with completion and grid connection expected sometime during the year.
