United States, Spain & China [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] With many economists predicting a return to better economic times in the first part of next year, solar energy markets seem to have stabilized at least enough that developers are ordering modules.
LDK Solar has signed a contract to supply solar modules to Belgium-based Enfinity. Under terms of the agreement, LDK Solar will deliver approximately 50 megawatts (MW) of solar modules to Enfinity in 2010.
“This new module sales contract with Enfinity reflects the growing interest and demand for our quality module products from European customers,” said Xiaofeng Peng, Chairman and CEO of LDK Solar.
Solaria Energía and Environment has closed an agreement with Grupotec for the supply of 2.4 MW of solar PV panels with more than €3.5 million. The company’s subsidiary Renewable Energy Generation Solaria, has closed on the development of two plants in Puertollano and La Rioja with installed capacities of 600 kilowatts and 2.2 MW respectively. These deals represent an estimated investment of more than €8 million and an aggregate potential of 5.2 MW.
Evolution Solar Corp. received a purchase order from an international customer for 8.5MW of mono crystalline solar panels that will be used for projects in Bermuda.
“I’m excited about this panel sale to our international clients, knowing that this is the first of many transactions,” stated Robert Hines, president of Evolution Solar Corp. “Our solar technologies lend themselves to numerous applications, regardless of where the site sits on the globe.”
