The solar thin-film project was commissioned under the Rooftop and Other Small Solar Power Generation Plant (RPSSGP) scheme administered by IREDA under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM).
It is the first project in the state of Andhra Pradesh to use Abound Solar cadmium telluride (CdTe) thin-film solar modules. Solarsis provided the solar PV installation's racking and mounting solutions.
"India is a key market for Abound Solar due to our US-made CdTe panel's excellent performance in India's climate, our commercial focus over the past two years, and our successful use of US Export-Import Bank financing. We have a significant installed base in India and see this growing in 2012," says Craig Witsoe, President and CEO of Abound Solar.
