SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ReneSola Ltd ("ReneSola") (NYSE: SOL), a leading brand and technology provider of solar photovoltaic ("PV") products, today announced collaborative projects with Silicon Valley-based solar integrator Vista Solar.
A 315 kW array is being constructed for Therm-X, a thermal solutions company based in California, and will be powered by ReneSola's 305W polycrystalline panels. Two additional systems totaling nearly 50 kW have been constructed for Our Lady of Peace Church and Saint Justin School. Both sites will host solar systems featuring ReneSola's 255W polycrystalline and 255W monocrystalline modules.
In addition, Vista Solar is testing ReneSola's microinverters and string inverters on a demo rooftop project with DCL, a Silicon Valley-based technology manufacturing, fulfillment, and logistics services provider.
"Our number one goal for all of our clients is to design systems that generate the lowest cost per kilowatt hour and the greatest long-term savings without sacrificing quality of craftsmanship," said Jaymes Callinan, vice president of Vista Solar. "After touring ReneSola's factory, carefully reviewing their financials and installing test systems to confirm output projections, we felt confident in partnering with Renesola on these important Silicon Valley installations. Now that the systems are installed, they look beautiful and are performing excellently."
