 SolarWorld Supplying 10.5 MW of Solar Panels for Oregon Project

SolarWorld has announced it will supply 10.5-MW of 72-cell solar panels for an Oregon project developed by Obsidian Renewables.

The project near Lakeview is expected to produce about 20.8 million kWh of electricity a year, enough to supply electricity to more than 1,800 homes.

“Obsidian Renewables is the exact type of customer we had in mind when we entered the 72-cell market, and working with customers like them we will continue to increase production and employment here in the USA,” said Ardes Johnson, SolarWorld’s U.S. vice president for sales and marketing.

Construction should be complete this year at which time Obisidian Renewables plans to sell the system’s power to PacifiCorp under a long-term power purchase agreement.
