Michigan, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] United Solar Ovonic (United Solar), a wholly owned subsidiary of Energy Conversion Devices Inc. (ECD) confirmed that it will supply up to 25 megawatts (MW) of Uni-Solar photovoltaic laminates to Enel Green Power for installation on a number of buildings owned by CIS-Interporto di Nola in Italy.
The Uni-Solar laminates will be fully integrated with the existing architecture and will be installed on the roofs of a number of commercial and logistic buildings, and are expected to begin producing power in 2010. Once operational, the facility will be capable of producing about 33 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year.
“This announcement of this significant purchase agreement with Enel Green Power is a good indication that the evolution of our business to target large scale, multi-rooftop projects is taking shape. We look forward to working with them on similar opportunities in other countries and expanding our relationship to include many more rooftop projects in the future,” said Mark Morelli, ECD’s president and CEO.
