The Chinese company, Astronergy (also known as Chint Solar), a subsidiary of Chint Group has been selected to provide approximately 12,700 modules for use in several utility scale projects in Tennessee. The first four of these projects, which were 750kw ground mounted systems, were commissioned at the beginning of Nov 2011 in Fayetteville, Tennessee.
The yearly 4.23GWh capable energy produced by the four systems is more than enough to support over 350 homes annually. The system's solar energy will be purchased by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) through its Generation Partners Program. This is just four of many other projects that Astronergy panels have been specified which will execute in Tennessee in 2012.
