First Solar Inc. will supply photovoltaic modules to Solar Shop Australia Pty Ltd. for a 1 MW rooftop project.
The solar power system, installed on six separate buildings at the Adelaide Showground in southern Australia, will be the largest PV installation in the country, First Solar says. The rooftop system is being commissioned by the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society of South Australia.
Solar Shop, in an alliance partnership with building and engineering company Build Environs Pty Ltd., will design and construct the 1 MW installation. Construction is anticipated to begin immediately and is expected to be completed by the third quarter of this year. The power produced by the solar installation will be used predominantly at the Adelaide Showground site.
