Solar energy project in Arizona
Kyocera,a Japanese multinational company is going to shipp solar panels for the 127MW Arlington Valley Solar energy II power project.
Till the year 2013, the company will continue to manufacture PV panels at its San Diego plant.
It isn’t for sure if Kyocera will be the only one supplier of PVs because no details of the deal have been released as yet.
The Arlington solar energy project, located in Maricopa County, sits on an area of 1,160 acres and will supplement the energy needs of residents and businesses alike.
With Europe deeply involved in renewables, countries across the globe are gearing up to establish wind farms and solar parks to meet power requirements.
Kyocera has begun shipping 34MW of modules and will continue to provide more in future.Earlier, the corporation had announced that it wanted to increase multicrystalline PV production to 1,000MW every year by March 2013.
The solar project received funding to construct the $550 million plant. The energy power that’s generated from the project will be sold off to San Diego Gas & Electric.
