SPI Solar says its China-based subsidiary, Xinyu Xinwei New Energy Co.Ltd., has signed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) agreements for 100 MW of solar PV projects in Julu County, Hebei Province, China.
The three separate agreements call for the development of two rooftop sites (consisting of 50 MW and 30 MW, respectively) for ecological agricultural farm rooftop installations, as well as a 20 MW distributed grid (DG) project.
Construction on the 50 MW rooftop project is scheduled to begin this month, with completion and grid connection expected in April 2015. Construction on the 30 MW rooftop project is scheduled to begin in May 2015, with completion and grid connection anticipated in August 2015.
Meanwhile, construction of the 20 MW DG project is also scheduled to begin this month, with completion and grid connection anticipated in March 2015.
"SPI continues to experience rapid growth in our project business as we leverage our ability to secure EPC and other agreements both in China and abroad," comments Xiaofeng Peng, chairman of SPI." We are encouraged by both the number and size of our recent agreements, which strengthens and adds diversification to our growing global solar PV portfolio."
