Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. plans to develop a 10 MW solar power plant in Dongtai, Jiangsu Province, China, in conjunction with its strategic partner, Huadian New Energy Development Co. Ltd., a power utility.
Suntech will supply solar modules and design and manage the installation of the plant. Suntech holds a minority share of the project.
The Dongtai solar plant, which is targeted to be completed by the end of this year, will be powered by more than 37,000 Suntech solar panels. The project is expected to be supported by Jiangsu Province's feed-in-tariff policy that provides 2.15 RMB/kWh for ground-mount solar projects completed in 2009.
