Aug. 13, 2013- Trina Solar today announced it has been chosen to provide 1.1 million of its multi-crystalline modules to the 345*MW Copper Mountain Solar 3 Project in Boulder City, Nevada. The project is owned and operated by Sempra U.S. Gas & Power and will be constructed by AMEC. When completed, the facility will provide clean solar electricity to 80,000 homes for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, and the City of Burbank.
"The selection of Trina Solar for this record-breaking project is a strong endorsement of our capabilities in meeting the evolving demands of our customers in a maturing market," said Mark Mendenhall, President of Trina Solar Americas. "We look forward to completing this project and powering tens of thousands of homes with clean, reliable solar power."
Trina Solar will provide 1,133,550 dual-rated, 72-cell PD14 solar modules for the project. The modules will start being shipped from Q4 of this year. The project is expected to be completed in Q1 2015.
"Trina Solar is uniquely qualified to provide solar panels to this project," said Tom Dotson, Vice President at AMEC. "Their modules' track-record of proven performance and their strong balance sheet made them an easy choice for Copper Mountain Solar 3."
