SPI Solar, the Roseville-based solar energy developer, says that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Xinyu Xinwei New Energy Co. Ltd., has received preliminary approval to develop a 10-megawatt solar project in eastern China.
The approval came from government officials in the city of Liaocheng in Shandong province.
Pending final approval, construction is scheduled to begin in this years fourth quarter, with completion expected in 2015.
During 2014, we have seen dramatically increased commitment in China by both provincial and local governments toward developing renewable energy generation capacity, particularly with solar PV power generation. SPI will continue to expand its footprint across Chinas PV markets, said Min Xiahou, global CEO of SPI, in a statement.
LDK Solar Co. is the China-based parent of SPI Solar, which has plans to further expand its project business in that country.
