sPower and Camborne Capital today announced that all three of their UK solar PV projects have achieved commercialization in time to qualify for the UK renewable obligation certificate (ROC) subsidy.
Declan Mackle, CEO of Camborne Energy Group commented, "This is a great result and represents another significant investment for the region. We are justifiably proud of our extremely professional team for delivering these projects smoothly and ahead of schedule."
The utility-scale projects, totaling 28.5MW, were connected to the UK grid well ahead of the March 31, 2015 deadline for 1.4 ROC accreditation. Located in Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion, the facilities were built by Oskomera and used TrinaSolar panels across all three sites.
"The projects, which are sPower's first assets outside the US, bring our generating capacity in the UK to more than 30MW. We are delighted to have worked with Camborne, Oskomera and TrinaSolar to deliver such high-quality, clean energy facilities," said Ryan Creamer, sPower CEO. sPower's UK solar portfolio will produce 33,679,664kWh annually -- the equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions of nearly 54,000 barrels of oil consumed each year.
