South Koreas PV manufacturer S-Energy announced today that it had been selected by juwi Inc. to supply about 240,000 PV modules, totaling 74 MW, for the developers utility-scale PV plants in Colorado.
Colorado-based U.S. subsidiary of the German juwi group is currently building three large-scale PV projects in the state. S-Energys newly-developed SN-series modules will be utilized in juwis 37.8 MW San Isabel Solar Energy Center and the 36.3 MW Larimer Solar Energy Center facilities.
The San Isabel Solar Energy Center in Las Animas County, southern Colorado, when completed will utilize roughly 120,000 solar modules and cover an area of 121.4 hectares. The Larimer Solar Energy Center located near Fort Collins will consist of approximately 117,000 modules spread over an area of 117.4 hectares.
According to S-Energy, one of the PV projects in Colorado is expected to be among the U.S.s first utility-scale PV installations with a maximum system voltage of 1,500 V.
S-Energy announced that along with enhanced technology to eliminate potential-induced degradation (PID), it had made several additional improvements on the modules' overall performance. According to the president of S-Energy America David Kim, this is the first time for the company to utilize its 1,500 V products in the U.S.
The construction of the two PV plants in Colorado started in March. Juwi Inc. announced that both projects would achieve commercial operation before the end of the year.
The company currently has three utility-scale PV farms under development in the state. The third of the facilities, a 15.9 MW solar farm located near Denver in Adams County is expected to break ground later this year.
