KYOCERA Supplies Additional 10MW of Solar Modules

Kyocera Corporation announced that it has recently delivered an additional 10 megawatts (MW) of solar modules to an existing 6MW installation near Turin, Italy — which the company supplied modules for earlier this year. Kyocera anticipates continued growth in the solar industry in Italy, as high levels of energy production from favorable sunlight conditions and an attractive feed-in tariff promote the expansion of solar energy.

The additional 10MW is distributed equally between the “Lotti” and “Petiva” sites — with 20,640 Kyocera modules installed at each of the two plants. Owing to its high efficiency and ability to reduce the amount of time and materials required for installation, the 60-cell module used for these two new plants is particularly suitable for industrial and utility-scale solar projects.

Recently completed, these new plants supplement an existing 6MW solar plant located in the Piedmont region, which is operated by Kyocera's partner ENERMILL Energie Rinnovabili s.r.l.. With a total output of 16MW, the Enermill solar park is the largest project to use Kyocera modules in Italy. The overall solar park is comprised of 68,100 Kyocera modules — producing approximately 20GWh per year of electricity, which is the equivalent energy requirement of roughly 4,500 local households, and off-setting 18,000 tons of CO2 annually.
