JA Solar announced that it has delivered over 100MWp of PV modules to Solarcentury, a leading UK solar developer and EPC, in 2014. The modules were mainly used in the solar developer's ground-mounted solar projects and large commercial rooftops in the UK.
Approximately 49MWp of JA Solar's proprietary Full Square mono 275Wp modules will be deployed for the Southwick solar farm. Once connected to the grid in March 2015, the farm will become one of the largest solar farms ever built in the UK.
"The UK market remains very successful for JA Solar and we have seen continued growth year after year," said Baofang Jin, the company's chairman and CEO. "We are very proud of our relationship with Solarcentury, a leading developer of large-scale solar around the world and well respected for its high quality construction and operations. We can confidently say our product is in good hands.
"Despite an impending renewables obligation (RO) limit to individual PV sites over 5MWp, we are still optimistic about the UK market in 2015," Jin continued. "The UK PV industry is extremely dynamic with strong fundamentals.. We see the market maturing at a fast rate, and any gradual shift of focus towards rooftop solar also lends well to our strategy for higher powered products."
