China Sunergy Co. Ltd., a solar cell and module manufacturer, has shipped 1.59 MW in solar panels to Emotion Energy.
Emotion Energy, in partnership with Edison Energy, installed the modules on 117 houses in a residential rooftop project in Faifley, Scotland, for the Knowes Housing Association Scotland.
This project, which is designed to address fuel poverty, is the first of its kind within Scotland, China Sunergy says. Households classified as living in fuel poverty are those who need to spend more than 10% of household income on energy to heat their homes.Â This PV solar rooftop project will allow 117 Knowes tenants to receive the electricity generated free of charge for 25 years.
The projects were installed in two weeks' time, prior to a change in feed-in tariffs on Dec. 12, China Sunergy notes.
