Chinese firm ReneSola is to supply 13MW of high efficiency PV modules for a large-scale UK solar park. The PV provider, which has headquarters in China, has announced it is supplying 13MW of its high efficiency Virtus and Virtus II polycrystalline PV modules for the solar park to Low Carbon, an investor in renewable energy developers and projects based in the UK.

The PV modules will power a ground-mounted 63.5-acre project in Wiltshire, England.

ReneSola will ship the PV modules from its warehouse locations in Poland and India to the solar park in Wiltshire. Delivery of the modules is underway and will continue over a five-week period, the company said.

The new solar park will generate enough clean energy to power more than 3,800 homes per year, based on estimates by UK energy regulator Ofgem.

Ian Glover, general manager of ReneSola UK, said: "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.

“We are confident 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," he said.

John Cole, chief investment officer of Low Carbon, said: "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. We look forward to working with ReneSola on the Wiltshire project."

The news from ReneSola marks the latest UK solar project for the Chinese company this year. The firm announced it had supplied 31MW of PV modules to power a UK commercial solar plant in England in January.
