Trina Solar to supply solar modules to 345 MW plant in Nevada

By Editor


Greentech Led China: Trina Solar, a provider of photovoltaic (PV) modules, solutions and services, announced it has been selected to provide 1.1 million of its high-quality PV multi-crystalline modules to the 345 MW Copper Mountain Solar 3 Project in Boulder City, Nevada.

The project is owned and operated by Sempra U.S. Gas & Power and will be constructed by AMEC. When completed, the facility will provide clean solar electricity to 80,000 homes for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, and the City of Burbank.

Under this contract, Trina Solar will provide 1,133,550 dual-rated, 72-cell PD14 solar modules for the project, which will be subjected to Trina Solar’s rigorous factory and site testing to ensure high standards of performance and reliability.

The modules will start being shipped from Q4 of this year. The project is expected to be completed in Q1 2015. Trina Solar’s selection for a project of this size and timeframe is a reflection of the Company’s ability to deliver a large volume of high quality modules and to meet tight deadlines.

“Trina Solar is uniquely qualified to provide solar panels to this project,” said Tom Dotson, vice president at AMEC. “Their modules’ track-record of proven performance and their strong balance sheet made them an easy choice for Copper Mountain Solar 3.”

Recently  Trina Solar announced the commercial availability of its enhanced version of its Trinasmart modules, embedded with Smart Curve technology.

Trinasmart is a module-integrated solution that optimizes the energy output of PV systems, enhances the safety of solar arrays, improves the installation speed of an array and reduces balance of system costs.
