ReneSola to provide panels for 54-MW Texas solar project

ReneSola Ltd. (NYSE: SOL), a leading brand and technology provider of solar photovoltaic (PV) products, said Nov. 18 that it will deliver more than 178,000 PV modules, which will be used in a 53.5-MW project being developed by solar PV project developer OCI Solar Power.

The modules will be installed in a project named Alamo II in San Antonio and another upcoming Texas development about two hours west of San Antonio. The multi-stage project will total 400 MW and provide power to CPS Energy, the municipal utility for the City of San Antonio, upon completion in 2016. A portion of the large-scale solar project will include ReneSola’s 300W high-efficiency polycrystalline modules.

Kevin Chen, president of ReneSola America, stated: “We are pleased to be providing our high-quality polycrystalline modules to OCI Solar Power’s project in Southern Texas. This collaborative development reflects our steady growth in this region of the United States, as well as our growing relationship with this thriving project developer. We hope to extend our cooperation with OCI Solar Power as we continue providing our high-efficiency PV products to large-scale solar projects in this region.”

Founded in 2005, ReneSola uses in-house virgin polysilicon and a vertically integrated business model to provide customers with high-quality, cost-competitive products. ReneSola solar PV modules are in projects around the world, including the U.S., Germany, Italy, Belgium, China, Greece, Spain and Australia.

OCI Solar Power is a leader in the solar power industry, providing innovation and development for utility-scale solar projects in communities throughout the U.S. San Antonio, Texas-based OCI Solar Power is owned by Atlanta-based OCI Enterprises.

ReneSola announced Nov. 15 its collaboration with Solar Side Up of Golden, Colo., in a series of projects totaling 44.5 KW in solar PV arrays in the past two months. A combination of ReneSola’s high-efficiency 250W and 255W polycrystalline modules were selected for several solar arrays in Golden, Colo., equating to 44.5KW of power, and implemented by experienced Golden-based solar energy integrator Solar Side Up.
