Sterling and Wilson Solar bags $99mn solar project in US
Sterling and Wilson Solar’s US arm will manage the entire turn-key execution for the photovoltaic power project.
Sterling and Wilson Solar Solutions, Inc, the US subsidiary of Sterling and Wilson Solar Ltd (SWSL), won a $99-million contract to construct a 194 MW project in the US.
The project is being developed by a leading sustainable energy company and will be co-located in an area that has substantial wind development in operation, SWSL said in a statement.
Construction for the project will be commissioned by November 2021. SWSL’s US arm will manage the entire turn-key execution for the photovoltaic power project. Once commercially operational, the plant will produce solar energy to power 35,000 homes, saving nearly 275,000 tonnes of carbon emissions. The plant will be utilising bifacial technology to increase production of power density.
Amit Jain, Country Head, Sterling and Wilson Solar Solutions, said: “The project will support concerns over climate change, create clean energy jobs, and save thousands of dollars in energy costs. It will also play a key role in transforming the state’s clean and renewable energy goals.”
