The 9.5MW PV array will
supply more than 12% of the power used by VW’s factory in Chattanooga,
Tennessee, says the German company.
The Volkswagen Chattanooga
Solar Park uses 33,600 modules from China’s JA Solar to produce 13.1 GWh of power
It is the biggest solar
installation so far seen in the state of Tennessee, says VW, which makes its
Passat model at the factory.
Developer Silicon Ranch will
operate the solar plant and sell all the power produced to VW under a 20-year
The plant was built by engineering,
procurement and construction (EPC) contractor Phoenix Solar.
