In order to increase installation figures in the southeastern region of the U.S., Suniva will integrate its high efficiency solar modules in a series of installations with FLS Energy. The first of these installations will be a 550kW solar farm developed on a former landfill in North Carolina.
FLS Energy, which has a 20-year power purchase agreement to sell the solar generated electricity to Progress Energy, will work with Suniva to reach the solar development goals for this region. “We’re seeing unprecedented demand in the Southeast for solar,” said Michael Shore, president of FLS Energy. “In order to address the rapidly expanding market here, FLS is committed to using the most advanced, efficient, and cost-effective solar technology available. Working with Suniva will allow us to address growing demand with technology that combines high-yield solar power with high-quality U.S. manufacturing content.”
The Suniva modules to be utilized in these projects are UL and IEC certified, CEC listed and offer a 25-year performance warranty. The modules are powered by Suniva’s high-efficiency ARTisun series solar cells and deliver peak power output up to 300w.
“Working with FLS Energy, Suniva will play a major role in driving growth in the southeastern solar market,” said John Baumstark, CEO of Suniva. “Our solar modules Powered by Suniva cell technology will enable FLS’s installations to deliver some of the highest levels of performance and reliability in the industry.”
Examples of the Suniva module will be on display at the Solar Power International event, at the Suniva booth — #2010.
