ET Solar supplies 21 MW of solar modules for North Carolina project

ET Solar Group Corp., a leading solar one-stop solution provider, announced Nov. 18 that it has provided 21 MW of solar PV modules to FLS Energy, a North Carolina solar contractor.

Designed and being installed by FLS, the project is one of the largest solar system installations for military purpose in North Carolina and is expected to be connected to the grid by the end of this year, the company noted. Using ET Solar’s 1000-Volt rated, 295W and 300W solar modules, the system is estimated to have an annual yield of 48 GWh.

Electricity generated from this plant will be purchased by the North Carolina Eastern Municipal Power Agency under a 15-year power purchase agreement.

“We’re very excited to be working with FLS Energy on this utility-scale solar project,” said Dennis She, President and CEO of ET Solar. “Solar system installation has reached nearly 260 MW in North Carolina so far and this makes the state the 6th largest solar power generator in the country. The project that we are acting as key equipment supplier for accounts for well over 5% of total solar system installation in the region and we are very proud to be playing such a very meaningful role in facilitating North Carolina’s solar industry development.”

“We very much enjoy our cooperation with ET Solar that provides high quality products, excellent service, and strong technical expertise,” said Chris Dunbar, Vice President and COO of FLS Energy.

ET Solar Inc. is the U.S. subsidiary of ET Solar Group Corp. Since beginning operations in 2006, FLS Energy has worked to bring solar into the mainstream by developing, engineering, financing, constructing and owning projects.
