Solar Frontier announced today their advanced technology has been selected by O2 emc for a 4MW project in North Carolina (NC), US.
A $10-million-dollar 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 versus fixed-tilt installations and traditional crystalline modules. Expected to be completed in 2015, the renewable energy plant will generate almost 7GWh of energy per year, or 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. That is in alignment with the high construction standards we maintain," said Joel Olsen, CEO of O2 emc.
Charles Pimentel, COO of Solar Frontier Americas commented, "O2 emc is dedicated to maximizing the local impact and profitability of each project they develop. The Tolson solar project will put hundreds of people to work and drive hundreds of thousands of dollars into the local community. Solar Frontier is honored to have been chosen to support this project."
