Convert Italia and Solaria commission CPV solar power plant in Italy

Greentech Lead Europe: Convert Italia, a renewable energy
company in Italy, and Solaria, a solar module manufacturer, have commissioned
the largest low concentrating PV solar power plant in the world in Puglia,
Italy.

The solar tracking power plant combines Convert Italia’s
MX1 horizontal tracking system with Solaria’s low concentration photovoltaic
modules.

“Tracking systems, which follow the sun’s transit
across the sky, increase sunlight capture, generating up to 30 percent more
electricity than fixed PV arrays. The result combines industry-leading
performance and reliability with compelling system economics. Solaria has been
a great partner, delivering quality products with a strong focus on customer
service. We’ve had high expectations for the performance of the Solaria
modules, and those expectations have been met,” said Giuseppe Moro,
president of Convert Italia.  

Convert Italia owns and operates the 2 MW plant the
company also constructing two additional solar power plants using Solaria modules.
Solaria’s patented technology and proprietary manufacturing process enable more
efficient use of crystalline PV material in standard form factor modules.

“Convert Italia’s trackers unlock the unique
advantages of Solaria modules. Our proprietary cell multiplication technology
enables our high efficiency modules to use less than half the silicon of other
PV modules. Solaria modules combined with Convert Italia’s outstanding engineering
and attention to detail has led to a highly successful project,” said Dan
Shugar, Solaria CEO.  

Optimized for solar
tracking systems, Solaria modules use high quality crystalline silicon,
robust tempered glass with specialized optical properties, and listed materials
for exceptional reliability and performance.
