Vikram Solar announced the commissioning of a 4.2-MW solar plant using Vikram Solar modules. This ground-mounted project marks the entry for Vikram Solar Limited (module supplier for the project) and Greencells USA (EPC handler for the project) into large-scale solar farms in the United States.
The Cottonwood solar project in Charlotte, North Carolina, was installed by Greencells USA. Vikram Solar’s Eldora 72-cell 315- and 320-Wp polycrystalline modules were used in commissioning the 4.2 MW ground-mounted solar project. The solar plant is expected to generate 6.72 GWh green energy per year.

We enjoyed working extremely closely with the entire project team at Greencells in order to maintain and fulfill their high standards. I congratulate them on their first solar plant in the USA and look forward to our next joint project.“
Commenting on the announcement, Mr. Andreas Hoffmann, CEO Greencells Group, said, “There is no second chance for a first impression. Hence, in our first large solar project in the U.S., we were very particular about proven high quality standards, extended linear performance guarantees combined with an affordable technology. Our clients have a clear expectation and so do we. Vikram Solar’s global track record and their astonishing commitment from Day 1, left us no doubt as to have found a trustworthy partner.”
