PVTIME - ReneSola Ltd ("ReneSola Power" or the "Company") (www.renesolapower.com) (NYSE: SOL), a leading fully integrated solar project developer, today announced that the Company has energized its first inaugural IPP project in Hungary in October, 2022.
The project "Csomád 1-2" consists of two PV plants with total installed capacity of 10.2 MWp, equivalent to powering approximately 4,000 households per day. The project entered the commercial operation stage in the beginning of October, 2022.
Mr. Josef Kastner, CEO of ReneSola Power Europe commented, "Hungary is an important solar power market in Europe and a critical part of our expansion strategy. We are proud to commercialize our first inaugural IPP project in Hungary and are well-positioned to drive growth in the years ahead and become a key player in the country. I would like to thank our team for its dedication and timely execution of this solar farm."
Mr. Yumin Liu, Group Chief Executive Officer of ReneSola Power, said, "This fully operational solar farm opened a new chapter of our company starting IPP business in Hungary. Since the Company entered the Hungary market five years ago, ReneSola Power has commissioned 72 feed-in tariff (FIT) projects totaling about 42 MWs. We have also successfully developed over 100 MWs of projects to the ready-to-build (RTB) stage, with half of the portfolio under active construction. Earlier this year, we announced our initiation of IPP strategy in Europe. The 10 MWp project in Hungary is our first self-developed and self-constructed project, which is another project to our growing IPP assets in Europe, following the 50 MWp Project Branston that we recently acquired in the UK. We are committed to becoming a major contributor to the renewable energy transition in Hungary. We are looking forward to our continued growth in this country and in Europe."
