Solar panels from former Norwegian manufacturer REC are powering a 2.15 MW self-consumption installation at Cedarville University in Ohio.
Some 8,792 of REC's Peak Energy Series panels are powering the array, which was constructed and is owned by Melink Corporation.
The order is presumably one of the dying acts of the united REC company which split into the Singaporebased REC Solar ASA and a Washington-based REC Silicon business late last month.
Arndt Lutz, senior VP of REC Solar – presumably the spun-off Singapore entity, said the Cedarville project which is set to supply around 10% of the institution's energy needs ‘will lead to further joint public-private initiatives' for the renamed company.
Melink Corporation will supply energy from the installation which will generate an estimated 2.7 million kWh/year to the university under a PPA.
And the project saw REC break new ground in the ever expanding lexicon of categories employed to convey the scale of projects with Monday's press release proudly proclaiming the project is ‘the largest solar system connected directly to a university in Ohio.'
