ReneSola has confirmed that it will be supplying UK investor Low Carbon with 13MW of modules for a solar project in Wiltshire.

The 13MW solar farm development will cover 25 hectares of land and is predicted to generate enough electricity to power more than 3,800 homes every year.  

Commenting on the partnership, John Cole, chief investment officer at Low Carbon said: “A key aspect of all of Low Carbon's solar park investments is to ensure that high-quality equipment is used to maintain our drive for high efficiency. We look forward to working with ReneSola on the Wiltshire project.”

Ian Glover, ReneSola UK’s general manager added: “We are confident that our high-quality solar products will benefit this solar park project, homeowners, and the environment. Our office in the UK and further investment in research and development will better meet energy needs in the UK, which we expect will become the largest solar market in Europe.”

ReneSola has said that it will ship the modules from both its warehouse locations in Poland and India, with delivery of the modules already underway and set to continue over a five-week period.

Last year the Chinese manufacturer set up a UK office in order to establish a long-term presence in the market. The sustained growth in the UK’s large-scale solar sector has helped the company land a number of deals with developers in the last 12 months including Isolux Corsan and Lightsource.
