South Korean PV panel maker S-Energy Co. Ltd. has reached an agreement to provide 74 MW of solar modules to juwi Inc., a project developer and turnkey engineering, procurement and construction firm specializing in solar energy plants. The modules will be utilized in utility-scale projects in Colorado.
Under the terms of the agreement, S-Energy will deliver the newly developed SN-series modules manufactured at its facility in Daejeon, South Korea. The company says this will represent the first time its 1,500 V products will be used in the U.S., and S-Energy notes it seen an increase in demand from U.S. companies since the December extension of the federal investment tax credit.
“S-Energy has been continuously working with juwi’s affiliates globally, including its parent company in Germany, to build a strong foundation based on trust and reliability,” says Sung-Min Hong, S-Energy’s founder and CEO. “We have had a very mutually successful relationship with juwi in 2015 in both U.S. and European markets, and we will strive to keep the bond strong for many years to come.”
