San Francisco, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. announced a 4-megawatt (MW) module supply agreement with Italian designer Enerray.
Suntech’s modules will be installed by Enerray in photovoltaic (PV) systems built for the rooftops of Italian industrial complexes. Italy supports the solar industry with feed-in-tariffs of €0.36 [US $0.56]/kilowatt-hour (kWh) for ground-mounted PV systems and €0.44 [US $0.69]/kWh for building integrated PV systems. The current government regulations have set the total feed-in-tariff program cap to 1.2 gigawatts (GW) before a re-evaluation of the solar program.
“The Italian government’s proven commitment to renewable energy has fueled significant solar market growth in the region. Suntech is resolute in supporting utilization of renewable energy resources through the supply of high quality and reliable solar products to European PV system providers such as Enerray,” said Jerry Stokes, President of Suntech Europe.
