ReneSola Ltd (“ReneSola”), a leading brand and technology provider of solar photovoltaic products, today announced it will provide 5.4 megawatts (“MW”) in solar modules to Welspun Energy Pvt. Ltd. (“Welspun Energy”), a New Delhi-based engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm, for a utility-scale project in India.
Under the terms of the agreement, this month ReneSola will provide 240W and 245W versions of its popular Virtus II solar PV modules, which were manufactured at the Company’s India-based OEM facilities, thereby satisfying the project’s domestic content requirements (DCR), which call for certain solar projects to incorporate locally manufactured components. The companies hope to expand the project, which is subject to regulatory allocation by India’s National Solar Mission.

Moreover, we look forward to working with Welspun Energy, an experienced and fast-growing EPC, to help India reach its green energy goals.”[/ezcol_1half_end]
