SAN FRANCISCO, May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ReneSola Ltd ("ReneSola" or the "Company") (NYSE: SOL), a leading global manufacturer of solar photovoltaic ("PV") modules and wafers, today announced it provided modules for use in three community-scale solar power projects in Vermont in the last few months. The solar projects were installed by solar tracker manufacturer and project developer AllEarth Renewables, Inc. ("AllEarth Renewables"), who chose ReneSola panels for each project.
Among the projects is a 150-kilowatt ("kW") solar farm in the Town of Williston, Vermont, which will provide substantial solar power to the town offices, police station and fire station. The 25-tracker solar farm will produce more than 210,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) annually and is installed in a field behind municipal buildings.
ReneSola also supplied panels for a 150 kW project in Bridport, Vermont, that will supply solar energy to the Vermont Hard Cider Company, which produces Woodchuck Hard Cider. This project consists of 26 AllSun Trackers, innovative dual-axis trackers developed by AllEarth Renewables, and will produce more than 210,000 kWh annually.
Lastly, a 35 kW solar installation at New Leaf Organic Farm in Monkton, Vermont, will provide solar energy for nearby Stark Mountain Woodworking, which makes high-end, custom furniture at a 15,000 square-foot facility in New Haven, Vermont.
ReneSola's chief executive officer, Mr. Xianshou Li, said, "We are pleased with the success of these three recent solar power projects in Vermont. We look forward to working with AllEarth Renewables to facilitate the wider use of solar energy through projects that benefit local communities.
