Trina Delivers 2.4-MW of Modules for Atlantic City Solar Project

Post Time:Sep 27,2008Classify:Company NewsView:351

Trina Solar Limited announced that it started shipments this month to provide more than 13,400 solar photovoltaic (PV) modules that will power the Atlantic City Convention Center (ACCC). This supply comes as part of a signed agreement with general contractor American Capital Energy, who is managing project integration and installation for Pepco Energy Services and the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority (ACCVA).

Once complete, the ACCC project, which RenewableEnergyWorld.com first reported on in June, will be one of North America's largest single roof-mounted solar arrays, with approximately 185,000 square feet of solar panels for a system size of approximately 2.4 megawatts (MW). The agreement between Trina and American Capital Energy provides for up to four additional MW of panels to be supplied during 2009.

The system is expected to generate more than 2.8 million kilowatt-hours of energy per year. The system is being developed under a 20-year power purchase agreement with Pepco Energy Services and is expected to provide the ACCC with energy savings of US $4.4 million over 20 years.

"We are very pleased that Trina Solar modules were chosen for this landmark roof-mounted system," said Jifan Gao, Trina Solar's chairman and CEO. "We are delighted to work with a proven solar system developer such as American Capital Energy as we enter this key growth market to provide efficient, clean solar energy in the years ahead."
