Silicon Valley Solar, a Santa Clara, Calif.-headquartered manufacturer of solar modules, has secured a 10 MW purchase order for the company's Sol-X2 modules to Pacific Power Management, an Auburn Calif.-based solar system integrator.
The contract calls for linear shipments of the modules over a three-year period, with an estimated total value in excess of $35 million. According to the company, its Sol-X2 solar modules require less than half the number of solar cells when compared to traditional solar modules. In addition, the company says they produce an equivalent or higher power output than other modules.
‘We're impressed with the module technology from SV Solar,’ says Mark Frederick of Pacific Power Management. ‘We like the fact that they perform as well as or even better than traditional flat plate modules, while seamlessly integrating into our existing racking systems.’
Shipment of the modules will begin in the first quarter of 2008.
