REC gets 85MW US module deal

PV module producer REC Solar has booked its largest utility-scale deal in the US, an 85MW clutch of contracts with an unnamed American EPC company.

REC – which is based and manufactures in Singapore – said the orders are also the first for its Peak Energy 72-cell module range, which was launched last month specifically to address the US utility and large-commercial segment.

The panels will be delivered to the “major” EPC specialist between July next year and February 2016.

Norway-listed REC Solar has recently secured orders in the US distributed segment from Sunrun and SolarCity.
