Norcross, Georgia (US), Nov 25 (ANI/Business Wire India): Suniva(r), Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of high-efficiency monocrystalline silicon solar cells and supplier of Suniva-branded solar modules, announced the completion of its collaborative project with Titan Energy Systems Ltd. to create India's first large-scale project in Jamuria, West Bengal.
Suniva's cells power the 1MW solar electric power plant which is expected to expand an additional 250kW early next year.
"High-efficiency solar technology presents significant advantages in terms of land use and balance of system costs, and Suniva is our key partner for delivering the high power and volumes needed to keep projects reliably moving forward," said Sankar Chodagam, Managing Director of Titan Energy Systems Ltd.
The Indian government recently approved a National Solar Mission, which includes a target of deploying at least 20GW of solar projects by 2020, as part of its national strategy to provide power to millions of citizens and combat climate change. Over the next five years, Titan plans to develop a series of large-scale projects and installations in Andhra Pradesh, India. Suniva fully supports and looks forward to continuing its collaboration with the fast-growing Indian market.
"As India pursues its significant goals for solar power, innovative solar cell technology will be just as crucial as new system designs and deployment strategies," said John Baumstark, CEO of Suniva.
"We maintain a close and open dialogue with Titan in order to provide them with the best possible technology solutions and look forward to partnering with them in the recently announced 1GW project in Andhra Pradesh. Our collaborative projects in India, the United States and throughout the world will help shape the future of renewable energy, " Baumstark added.
Worldwide interest in solar technology made in the United States continues to grow. Suniva's technology is currently being integrated into a variety of installations throughout the United States, including a 550kW solar farm in North Carolina and a 10MW development in Georgia. (ANI)
