Solar Frontier selected for O2 emc's 4MW project In North Carolina

Tokyo-based Solar Frontier – the largest manufacturer of CIS (copper indium selenium) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solar modules – has been selected by independent power producer O2 emc near Charlotte, NC for a 4MW project in North Carolina (one of the fastest-growing solar states in the USA). The Tolson solar project will be one of the first tracking installations with CIS thin-film solar modules in the state.

A $10m investment, the Tolson solar plant under construction in Edgecombe County, NC, will be equipped with Exosun's Exotrack HZ single-axis trackers, orienting over 24,000 Solar Frontier modules towards the sun throughout the day to considerably increase the plant's output compared with fixed-tilt installations and traditional crystalline modules. Due to be completed in 2015, the plant will generate almost 7 gigawatt-hours of energy per year (more electricity than 600 average American homes would consume on an annual basis).

"We selected Solar Frontier based on their solar module's strong performance, quality and commitment to sustainability," comments O2 emc's CEO Joel Olsen.

"O2 emc is dedicated to maximizing the local impact and profitability of each project they develop," says Solar Frontier Americas chief operating officer Charles Pimentel. "The Tolson solar project will put hundreds of people to work and drive hundreds of thousands of dollars into the local community," he adds.
