Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. plans to build a 1.5 MW solar system in HuaiAn City, Jiangsu Province, China, in collaboration with Jiangsu Guoxin Asset Management Group Ltd. The solar system, which is expected to be completed by October 2009, will be the first grid-connected, 1 MW-plus solar system installed in Jiangsu Province, according to Suntech.
Suntech Energy Engineering, Suntech's China-based systems integration team, will design and install the solar system on 19,000 square meters of rooftop on buildings housing a subsidiary of Jiangsu Guoxin Group in HuaiAn City.
The project is expected to be eligible to receive the recently announced subsidy for roof-mounted solar systems, Suntech notes.
