Getting solar photovoltaic modules in the U.S. can be a major challenge, says Jigar Shah, Managing Partner of Maryland-based SunEdison. He should know, too. His company, in partnership with a Nevada-based project integrator, announced construction will soon begin on an 18 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project that would provide power to a U.S. military base in the Nevada Desert.

"We've gotten the MW, we've been given assurances but we've had to be vigilant about it. I think modules are a major challenge." -- Jigar Shah, SunEdison, Managing Partner
