Trina Solar Limited (TSL), a global leader in photovoltaic (PV) modules, solutions and services, has been selected to provide 1.1 million of its high-quality PV multi-crystalline modules to the 345 MW Copper Mountain Solar 3 Project in Boulder City, Nevada.
The project is owned and operated by Sempra U.S. Gas and Power and will be constructed by AMEC. When completed, the facility will provide clean solar electricity to 80,000 homes for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, and the City of Burbank.
"The selection of Trina Solar for this record-breaking project is a strong endorsement of our capabilities in meeting the evolving demands of our customers in a maturing market," said Mark Mendenhall, President of Trina Solar Americas.
"We look forward to completing this project and powering tens of thousands of homes with clean, reliable solar power."
Trina Solar will provide 1,133,550 dual-rated, 72-cell PD14 solar modules for the project, which will be subjected to Trina Solar's rigorous factory and site testing to ensure high standards of performance and reliability.
The modules will start being shipped from Q4 of this year. The project is expected to be completed in Q1 2015.
Trina Solar's selection for a project of this size and timeframe is a reflection of the Company's ability to deliver a large volume of high quality modules and to meet tight deadlines.
"Trina Solar is uniquely qualified to provide solar panels to this project," said Tom Dodson, Vice President at AMEC.
"Their modules' track-record of proven performance and their strong balance sheet made them an easy choice for Copper Mountain Solar 3."
