Suntech and BASS Electric to Supply Solar Modules to SFIA

Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. today announced that it has reached an agreement to supply close to 3,000 solar modules for installation in the San Francisco International Airport’s (SFIA) new Terminal T3 solar project. The solar modules will be installed by San Francisco-based BASS Electric.

Jeff Yee, President of BASS Electric said, “This project demanded the PV modules meet a specific set of stringent performance criteria, and Suntech was able to meet or exceed all of them. Using Suntech’s products, we will be able to deliver San Francisco International Airport with a highly reliable, cost effective and clean source of energy.”‘ The 450-kilowatt (kW) system will cover the approximate area of a football field and will be visible to the public from the SFIA Air Train. The system will also be integrated with a new roof membrane further protecting the building by blocking UV exposure and reducing heating of the roof. In August of 2006, Suntech established a wholly owned subsidiary, Suntech America, with a mandate to increase public awareness of solar power in North America. “We are delighted to partner with BASS Electric to be the exclusive supplier of solar modules to the San Francisco International Airport, one of the world’s busiest airports, which reflects the momentum of our North American sales initiatives led by Suntech America,” said Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech’s Chairman and CEO.
