Nexamp and Heliene agree on »largest community solar module order in U.S. history«

Nexamp Inc, a U.S. independent power provider specializing in »community solar« projects to serve residential, commercial and municipal customers, has placed what it says is a »monumental« order with Canadian module manufacturer Heliene Inc. According to the statement, it is the »largest community solar module order in U.S. history.« In purely numerical terms, however, the contract, which was made public during a visit by U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm to Heliene’s factory in Mountain Iron, Minnesota, is a fairly voluminous but unexceptional framework agreement for the solar industry, under which Nexamp will purchase 1.5 gigawatts of module capacity from Heliene over the next five years, or 300 megawatts annually.
In terms of further information, Nexamp only announced that the Heliene modules will be used to implement »about 400 new community solar projects across the nation«, i.e. systems with an average of 3.75 megawatts. The two companies did not provide any further details, in particular on the agreed prices.
