Solar Frontier Modules Selected For 16 Projects In The Agriculture Segment By Staten Solar

19.04.2016

Tokyo – Solar Frontier, the world’s largest CIS solar energy solutions provider, announced today that its CIS modules will be installed at sixteen (16) solar project sites ranging in size up to 522 kW by Staten Solar, a leading EPC provider in California.  These solar PV systems will be located in Tulare and Kern Counties of California’s Central Valley on farms that produce almonds, pistachios and table grapes.

Each project has unique characteristics requiring innovative construction techniques and designs including a mix of ground-mounted and Staten Solar’s proprietary levee-mounted racking systems.  These solar PV systems integrate cost effectively with the customer’s existing facilities, environmental/land requirements, and business models to deliver high energy yields and provide reliable, long term performance.  Solar Frontier modules were selected by Staten Solar for their advantageous performance in real-world conditions including high yields in hot temperatures and under partial shading. Three of the sixteen projects are currently operational with the balance expected to be completed by the end of 2016.

Charles Pimentel, COO of Solar Frontier Americas, said, “Staten Solar understands the challenges the agricultural communities face and utilizes their solar expertise in aggregated net metering, rate optimization, demand response, peak day pricing, and financing to deliver valuable energy solutions that help farmers reduce their monthly operating costs. We are pleased Solar Frontier modules were selected for these commercial agriculture solar energy projects.”

“Staten Solar has been impressed with the quality, performance and customer service provided by Solar Frontier,” said Staten Solar Chairman and Managing Director, Sandipan Bhanot. “Our customers expect us to recommend the best product for their needs and for the hot Central Valley - Solar Frontier panels are an excellent choice in terms of superior production and high performance in the field.”

Solar Frontier’s CIS modules are manufactured using fully automated production lines in state-of-the-art facilities in Japan. Solar Frontier has a legacy of manufacturing excellence and its precision manufacturing process ensures customers receive the highest quality solar modules.
