US-based sPower and its UK partner Camborne Capital have announced the commercial operation of three UK solar projects with 28.5 megawatts of capacity, and qualifying for the UK renewable obligation certificate subsidy.
The utility-scale projects, totaling 28.5MW, were connected to the UK grid ahead of the March 31, 2015 deadline for the 1.4 ROC accreditation. Located in Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion, the facilities were built by Oskomera and used TrinaSolar panels across all three sites.
“The projects, which are sPower’s first assets outside the US, bring our generating capacity in the UK to more than 30MW. We are delighted to have worked with Camborne, Oskomera and TrinaSolar to deliver such high-quality, clean energy facilities,” said Ryan Creamer, sPower CEO.
