Solar Frontier announces completion of 14MW of projects installed with CIS PV modules in Indiana

San Jose-based Solar Frontier Americas, the US subsidiary of Tokyo-based Solar Frontier – the largest manufacturer of CIS (copper indium selenium) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solar modules – says that two utility-scale solar projects installed with its CIS modules have been completed and are now in operation.

Located in Terra Haute and Brazil, Indiana, USA, both solar power generation plants are 7MW in size, and are the largest utility-scale projects in their respective counties. First announced in October 2015, the projects were developed and are owned and operated by Cypress Creek Renewables (CCR), which specializes in locally based development strategies and ownership of solar projects (with over 2.6GW of solar farms deployed or in development). The projects are delivering power to Duke Energy under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA).

"Cypress Creek Renewables is committed to the local communities they build in and they deliver high-quality, well-kept solar power generation plants," comments Solar Frontier Americas' chief operating officer Charles Pimentel.

According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the state of Indiana has 150MW of solar installed and is projected to install 345MW of capacity over the next five years. In addition to the federal tax credit and depreciation deductions, Indiana offers several renewable energy tax exemptions.
