ReneSola PV module installations tops 100MW in Greece

Chinese firm announces over 100MW of PV modules have been connected to the Greek grid since November 2011

The 100MW of installations in Greece include a range of ground-based and rooftop systems

More than 100MW of a Chinese solar firm’s PV technology has been connected to the grid in Greece, it has emerged. ReneSola, a leading global manufacturer of solar photovoltaic modules and wafers in China, has announced that a total of over 100MW of the company's PV modules have been distributed, installed, and connected to the grid in Greece since November of 2011.

The achievement is primarily the result of the company's strategic partnership with BIG SOLAR S.A. ("BIGSOLAR"), the biggest Greek stock-holder and distributor in the field of PV systems for electricity production through solar energy. BIGSOLAR has served as ReneSola's exclusive distributor for Greece and Cyprus since July of 2012 and will exhibit ReneSola's PV modules at the Solarex Solar and PV Technologies Exhibition in Istanbul in April of this year.

The 100MW of installations include a range of ground-based and rooftop systems, most notably five high-performing BIGSOLAR projects totalling 8.65MW. This includes a 1.95MW project near Athens, the largest rooftop installation in Greece.

Xianshou Li, ReneSola's chief executive officer, said: "Greece, as a key solar market, has always been an important focus of our international marketing efforts and we are proud to have reached this milestone with the help of our local partner, BIGSOLAR. We expect this collaboration will support not only our efforts in the Greek market, but also in regional markets, where consumers have begun to recognise the high efficiency and high power output of our modules."
