CBD, Westinghouse to develop solar PV project in US

12 Jul 2012

CBD Energy, a diversified renewable energy company, has been selected by a school in New Jersey, US for engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to build a $3.8m solar photovoltaic (PV) system.


The project involves installing multiple rooftop and carport solar PV systems which will supply renewable power to the school.

CBD Energy US Development & Investor Relations senior vice president James Greer said, "The successful completion of this first solar project will be an important demonstration of CBD's competitive advantage in a market that has significant renewable energy development."

Westinghouse Solar CEO Margaret Randazzo said, "Expansion to capture EPC opportunities such as this project in the U.S., and the development of international distribution opportunities for Westinghouse Solar, such as the agreement we previously announced with CBD for sales of our solar panels to Harvey Norman in Australia, are examples of the new markets and synergies we were looking for from a CBD and Westinghouse Solar business combination."

Westinghouse Solar will partner with CBD's EPC division to deliver the project and lend its technical and project management services to deliver the project.

The excess power generated from the project will be sold back into the grid; the project is expected to start in mid-July and be completed in three months time.

US based Westinghouse Solar is a designer and manufacturer of solar power systems.
