Solar Integrated Wins $10 M Project for Rome

Solar Integrated Technologies, Inc. has won two contracts totaling U.S. $10 million to provide 2 megawatts (MW) of solar systems at two sites outside of Rome, Italy.

The project includes a ground-mount system and a building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) system at the Malagrotta Landfill. The project, which is the company’s largest European contract to date as well as one of the largest announced solar deals in Italy, is expected to be completed in late 2007. The project marks Solar Integrated’s entrance into the Italian market, after having implemented 50 projects in Germany, Spain and France. With recent changes to the Italian feed-in tariff program, Solar Integrated plans to pursue BIPV opportunities in Italy. “The flexible nature of Solar Integrated’s solar solution was very important to securing this project at the in-use Malagrotta Landfill site,” said Manlio Cerroni, President and owner of Colari Consorzio Laziale Rifi uti and Sorain Cecchini S.p.A. “Their solar product is able to effectively conform to our site layout and unique landfill terrain, including moving ground.” Cerroni added, “We are thrilled to have a renewable power generating capability that is expected to produce over 54 million kilowatt hours of power and displace over 45,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions over the next 20 years.”
