ReneSola signs biggest sales order to date in Jordan


ReneSola has signed a deal with Amman-based Consolidated Energy & Economic Engineering to provide 1.6 MW in solar modules and 1 MW in mounting systems for a series of residential and commercial rooftop projects in Jordan.

"This contract win represents ReneSola’s biggest sales order in Jordan to date and includes one of the country’s largest-ever commercial rooftop projects," said ReneSola CEO Xianshou Li. "This collaboration reflects our steady growth in emerging markets like Jordan and we look forward to expand our market share in the region."

ReneSola will provide 6,400 of its Virtus II 250W modules, along with 1.05 MW of roof-mounting structures to Consolidated Energy. One of the installations, a 1.1 MW commercial project to be completed within five months in Amman, will employ 4,400 units. The remaining 2,000 panels will be used in a number of residential projects.

"We chose to work with ReneSola because, in addition to their market-leading module technology, we value the on-the-ground sales and service support that their regional team can provide," said Consolidated Energy CEO Mansour W. Murad.

Founded in 1991, Consolidated Energy provides energy and engineering solutions to the residential, commercial, governmental and industrial sectors.

Murad added that Jordan’s solar market was growing quickly and the company looked forward to future opportunities to partner with ReneSola.
