Hanwha SolarOne Co. Ltd., a top-10 global photovoltaic manufacturer of high-quality, cost-competitive solar modules, has signed a deal with O2 Energies to supply 17 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules for three solar projects in North Carolina. The supply deal will include Hanwha SolarOne’s new S Series modules.
“Hanwha SolarOne is thrilled to have O2 Energies as a partner in North Carolina,” said Steve Kang, president of Hanwha SolarOne USA. “We are focused on expanding our presence in new regions around the U.S. as we pursue growth in the North American utility sector.”
The modules will be used at O2 Energies’ Cirrus, Chocowinity and Rockwell solar plants. Construction has commenced on all three projects, which are scheduled to reach completion in December 2014. Hanwha SolarOne’s modules are already being delivered to the three project sites.
“O2 Energies chose the new S series Hanwha module because of its anti-PID technology and 1000 Volt UL certification, which is important for the string inverter design of our Rockwell Solar project,” said Olee Joel Olsen, president of O2 Energies. “Hanwha SolarOne is known for its qualit strength, making our investors comfortable with financing projects that use Hanwha SolarOne modules.”
Hanwha SolarOne’s new S Series modules feature a slimmer frame which reduces material and shipping costs, a four busbar design yielding more efficient energy production and industry leading weak light and high temperature performance.
All Hanwha SolarOne modules are backed by a 25-year linear power warranty and 12-year workmanship warranty, as well as Underwriters Laboratories (UL) certification.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
