British Columbia, Canada [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Day4 Energy Inc. announced that it has supplied solar modules to Mitsui & Co, Ltd. for an installation sponsored by the Japanese Government’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). The NEDO project has included the Day4 48MC modules among twenty-six other module types in its evaluation of the positive and stabilizing impact that large-scale photovoltaic (PV) systems can have on the regional utility grid.
The NEDO project will be executed in phases with the entire 2-megawatt (MW) system expected to be operational in mid-2009. The project will evaluate and optimize a cross-section of leading PV technology options including monocrystalline silicon, multicrystalline silicon, thin film and concentrating systems.
“Day4 Energy’s modules are designed to bring high performance, longer lifespan, and faster ROI to solar power generation. It is an honor to be included among the leading solar technology options on the market today for this Japanese evaluation of large-scale PV development. In the process we have gained key relationships, valued partners and a strategic foundation for continued growth in the global solar market,” said Day4 Energy President and COO George Rubin.
