Abound Solar Powers 3.2MW of Projects with GP JOULE in Germany
The Bosbüll installation is already underway and will total 800kW DC in capacity.
Abound Solar, a leading manufacturer of cadmium telluride thin-film photovoltaic solar modules, and GP JOULE GmbH, a specialist in solar project development based in Reußenköge Germany, today announced two large ground-mount projects in Bosbüll and Treia Germany that will utilize Abound Solar modules. The Bosbüll installation is already underway and will total 800kW DC in capacity. Preparation for the Treia installation has begun and will total 2.4MW DC in capacity. Both systems utilize REFUSol 500k and 630k inverters from REFU Solar Electronics.
“GP JOULE is rapidly expanding to meet the incredible demand for high-quality, end-to-end renewable energy project development,” said Heiner Gaertner, Managing Director of GP JOULE. “Abound Solar is uniquely positioned to help us continue that growth as it continues to ramp production capacity and support its customers.”
“Abound Solar has significantly ramped up production and module efficiencies since its commercial launch and is excited to work with an experienced partner like GP JOULE,” said Tom Tiller, Chief Executive Officer of Abound Solar. “We are glad to work together to demonstrate the performance and reliability of Abound Solar modules in large-scale installations in Germany.”
