Solar Frontier reported that it will collaborate with New Energy for the World (NEW) on an 8.1 MWp solar power plant in Banwell, UK. Solar Frontier will supply CIS solar modules, cabling, and inverters that are optimized for their use in power plant. The supplied CIS modules are expected to deliver 9.1 GWh of electricity per year. The contract for the project was signed at the Intersolar Europe trade show in Munich. Construction is scheduled to begin in September, 2014.
Solar Frontier designed its aesthetic-black CIS modules to deliver excellent low-light behavior and resistance to partial shading, making them ideal for the UK climate. Solar Frontier’s CIS modules are MCS-certified (Microgeneration Certification Scheme), making them eligible for the UK’s feed-in-tariff schemes for rooftop installations below 50kWp capacity and free-field PV power plants. Solar Frontier’s CIS modules are also certified as RoHs compliant.
“We are happy to strengthen our relationship with New Energy for the World,” said Wolfgang Lange, Managing Director, Solar Frontier Europe. “It’s good to tie new bonds with capable partners that show commitment to the UK, one of the most promising regions in Europe for our business. We are pleased to deliver the complete package of electronic components for the upcoming solar power plant in Banwell.”
