“Despite ongoing challenging macro conditions related to COVID-19, we have begun construction of the 19 MW solar projects in Poland. We are very pleased with our progress, and look forward to further supporting solar deployment in the years ahead.”
Pierre-Antoine Machelon, fund manager of Eiffel Energy Transition said that the firm is happy to build on its initial partnership with ReneSola Power to help expedite growth in the Polish market and contribute to the acceleration of the renewable energy transition across the region.
“The strong engagement of ReneSola Power, coupled with the quality of the processes being put in place locally, were key in the selection of these projects.”
Josef Kastner, CEO of ReneSola Power Europe, commented, “we have successfully developed solar projects in Poland and have sold over 81 MW of projects in the last four years. Poland remains a key market for ReneSola Power, and we are committed to our strategy to further expand our business and become a major player in Poland and other European markets.”
In June, the firm had announced that it will participate in a consortium to develop a large-scale ground-mounted solar plant in the south of France. The plant is expected to produce 46 GWh, and supply electricity to approximately 10,000 households per year. The consortium is led by Tenergie, the second-largest independent power producer in France.
