China: 1.3 MW thin film rooftop PV installation completed

Located at the DuPont Apollo production facility in Guangming New District, Shenzhen, it is said to be the largest single structure thin film PV rooftop installation in the country to date.

Work began on the system in July. Covering roughly 23,000 square feet of roof space, it comprises 13,000 amorphous silicon PV modules and is expected to generate an output of around 1.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually.

David Chu, DuPont Apollo leader commented: “We hope this project will be a role model for other businesses that wish to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels by generating the electricity they need on their own rooftops.”
