Suntech Launches7.5 MW of Off-Grid Projectsto Power Schools and Villages in Malaysia

Posted on 2014-07-29
Wuxi, China,July 29, 2014/Press Release/: Wuxi Suntech, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of PV modules, announced that it will provide PV panels for 7.5 MW of off-grid projects to power rural schools and villages in Malaysia.

 

The announcementfalls under a government initiative, the Rural Solar Hybrid Electricity Project for Villages and Schools in the Interior,overseen by the Ministry of Rural and Regional Development. The project was launched recently and is set to be completed in several phases and continue into 2017. The first phase will provide 960 kW to power three schools- SK NangaMetah, SK Nanga Janan and SK Sungai Tunoh – as well as to 20 surrounding villages. The subsequentrollout of the project will reach a total of 7.5 MW of electricity to additional rural schools and villages.

 

The PV modules will form a micro-grid system set to provide 24 hour electricity to three schools and20 surrounding villages. The system will consist of Suntech’s high-efficiency, VDE Quality Tested modules.

 

“We have been working diligently with our partners Helios Photovoltaics and the Malaysian government for several years to launch this revolutionary project. We’re using diesel generators and German battery packs to backup Suntech’s best in class PV Modules in this system. Many locations in the region are only accessible via boat or helicopter and have previously been left to rely on diesel generation for power. These new micro-grid systems will help to significantly reduce diesel costs and cut 10,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year, providing clean, reliable energy for the schools and villages in Sarawak. We are extremely proud of our work with Helios and the Malaysian Government that has enabled us to bring this project tofruition,” said Samuel Zhang, sales director for APMEA&China atSuntech.

 

Thanks to its recent acquisition by Hong Kong-based Shunfeng Photovoltaics Ltd., Suntech has the best financial balance sheet within the solar industry and is pursuing a new business strategy that will make it the largest integrated clean energy provider globally. Suntech will provide one-stop access to the Shunfeng family of companies with capabilities in design, engineering, manufacturing, construction, finance, insurance, operation and maintenance, energy storage, solar products and applications.
