SunBorne Energy, a specialist in utility-scale solar projects, and Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. have entered into a framework agreement for the supply of 100 MW of solar panels over the next two years for projects in India.
Suntech will supply 280 W polycrystalline silicon modules for projects that will be designed, installed and commissioned by SunBorne Energy. The agreement includes an initial order for 10 MW of solar panels for a project in Gujarat, India.
The solar sector in India has been growing rapidly, backed by government support at both the federal and state level, the companies note. India has a target to reach a cumulative installation of 2 GW of off-grid and 20 GW of on-grid PV installations by 2022 to help meet the country's burgeoning energy demands.
