Construction work has been scheduled to start this August, says the company, to enable the plant to be connected to the grid by the end of the year. The plant will generate and supply approximately five million kilowatt hours per year of electricity to the grid.
Phoenix Solar is responsible for the planning and construction of the solar power plant. After the plant has been commissioned, it will also provide Etrion with operation and maintenance services. Trina Solar crystalline solar modules and SMA inverters will be used for the plant.
