Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. has been selected to supply over 25,000 modules for Recurrent Energy's 5 MW municipal solar power project atop the Sunset Reservoir in San Francisco. All modules are scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter of this year.
The project, contracted by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission in late 2008 and signed into law by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom in May, will more than triple San Francisco's total municipal solar power output from 2 MW today to 7 MW upon completion in 2010.
Recurrent Energy will own and operate the system and sell all the renewable electricity to the city and county of San Francisco under a 25-year power purchase agreement.
