A 1.5MW rooftop installation is to be begin at a subsidiary of Jiangsu Guoxin Group in HuaiAn City, Jiangsu Province, China, managed by Suntech’s China-based systems integration team. The large-scale rooftop project is the first over 1MW to be installed in the province, according to Suntech.
Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech’s Chairman and CEO, said: ”We are very pleased to collaborate with Jiangsu Guoxin Group to bring to fruition the largest rooftop solar project in Jiangsu Province to date. Roof space on factories and warehouses is an underutilized resource and ideal for rooftop solar systems. We look forward to implementing many similar rooftop solar systems across China.”
The project is expected to be eligible to receive the recently announced subsidy for roof-mounted solar systems.The system is expected to be completed by October 2009.
