ReneSola to provide solar modules to 13MW UK solar park

Friday, Feb 21, 2014

ReneSola Ltd. ("ReneSola") (NYSE: SOL), a leading brand and technology provider of solar photovoltaic (PV) products, today announced it is supplying 13MW of its high-efficiency Virtus and Virtus II polycrystalline solar modules to Low Carbon, a UK-based investor in renewable energy developers and projects. The modules will power a ground-mounted project on 63.5 acres of land in Wiltshire, England.

ReneSola will ship the modules from its warehouse locations in Poland and India to the new solar park in Wiltshire. Delivery of the modules is underway and will continue over a five-week period. The new solar park will generate enough clean energy to power more than 3,800 homes per year, based on estimates by the UK energy regulator Ofgem.

"A key aspect of all of Low Carbon's solar park investments is to ensure that high-quality equipment is used to maintain our drive for high efficiency," said John Cole, chief investment officer of Low Carbon. "We look forward to working with ReneSola on the Wiltshire project."

"We are excited to have been selected to provide our high-efficiency polycrystalline modules to this new solar park project in collaboration with Low Carbon," said Ian Glover, general manager of ReneSola UK. "We are confident that our high-quality solar products will benefit this solar park project, homeowners, and the environment. Our office in the UK and further investment in research and development will better meet energy needs in the UK, which we expect will become the largest solar market in Europe."
