Suntech Completes China’s First On-Grid Utility-Scale Solar Project

Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd., a manufacturer of crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules, has announced the completion and grid connection of the first 10 MW utility-scale solar power project in China.

Located in Shizuishan, Ningxia, the 10 MW ground-mounted solar system is the first phase of a 50 MW solar plant that is targeted to be completed by 2011 in conjunction with Suntech's strategic partner, China Energy Conservation Investment Corp. In addition to supplying the solar modules for the system, Suntech designed, installed and managed the development of the solar system and holds a minority share of the project.

The solar system, which was approved by the Ningxia Autonomous Region Development and Reform Commission in June, is powered by more than 37,000 Suntech solar panels and is projected to displace approximately 20,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year, according to the company.
