Minneapolis-based tenKsolar ships 1.69 MW rooftop system to China
tenKsolar, a Minneapolis-based manufacturer of high energy density, low voltage PV systems, shipped 1.69 megawatts of tenKsolar DUO for SafeGreen Energy projects in Shanghai. The solar rooftop projects are designed and constructed by SafeGreen.
SafeGreen chose to install the tenKsolar DUO system because of its performance in energy density and low weight. tenK’s technology allows these systems to deliver about 40% more energy from the available roof space vs. conventional solar options with low weight and no roof penetrations.
“We are delighted to show the world that tenK’s technology is winning in China, the largest and most competitive solar market in the world,” said Joel Cannon, tenKsolar CEO. “It is a credit to our outstanding team in the U.S. and China who have designed, built and delivered what is truly the world class standard in commercial rooftop solar.”
tenKsolar designs, manufactures and markets high efficiency and highly reliable PV solutions designed to deliver the maximum amount of solar on a commercial roof. Using its patented technology, tenKsolar offers turnkey commercial rooftop solar PV arrays providing great energy density, lowest energy costs, low-voltage safety and low installation cost. tenKsolar worked hard for several years to establish its Asia division.
“We chose tenKsolar’s DUO PV system due to its inherent low voltage, fire safety and perfect fit for commercial rooftop with low roof loading and easy installation,” commented Zhan Sheng, Chairman of SafeGreen Group. “We will continue to work with the tenKsolar team for our future DG projects and consider tenKsolar an important strategic partner for our success in PV power development.”
