Abound Solar and Solar Integration Systems India Private Limited (Solarsis) has announced the commissioning of a 1MW solar photovoltaic plant in Kadiri, Andhra Pradesh, India.

The commissioning officially took place on January 14, 2012 and comes less than a year after the two companies announced a partnership targeting the fast-growing Indian solar market.

This project was commissioned under the Rooftop and Other Small Solar Power Generation Plant (RPSSGP) Scheme administered by IREDA under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM).

It is the first project in the state of Andhra Pradesh to use Abound Solar Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) thin-film modules. The combination of Abound Solar's low-cost modules, along with Solarsis' homegrown racking and mounting solution, cut down on the overall balance-of-system (BoS) cost of the project.

"This plant will generate operational data on different technology performance in Indian weather conditions as this 1MW plant uses 620KW of Thin Film based on Abound modules and 380KW of crystalline silicon with single-axis tracking technology" said Venkat Rajaraman, CEO of Solarsis.

"India is a key market for Abound Solar due to our U.S.-made CdTe panel's excellent performance in India's climate, our commercial focus over the past two years, and our successful use of U.S. Export-Import Bank financing. We have a significant installed base in India and see this growing in 2012," said Craig Witsoe, President and CEO of Abound Solar. "Solarsis is a good partner for us, offering project and local industry expertise."
