BP Solar building massive USA plant

Houston, USA — Industry leader BP Solar and American financial group MetLife inked an agreement confirming joint ownership of the Long Island Solar Farm, a giant 32 MW solar PV generation plant in Upton, New York.

BP Solar is leveraging its manufacturing and engineering capacity to build the plant, and will operate and maintain the 200-acre facility, whilst MetLife is an investor partner. All solar energy generated from the facility will be sold under a 20-year power purchase agreement to the Long Island Power Authority.

The solar park, constructed with approximately 164,000 BP Solar panels, will be commissioned at the end of calendar year 2011, and is expected to produce enough electricity to meet the needs of 4,500 average homes in the nearby area.

You can leverage BP Solar’s experience at your own home, installing a BP Solar generation system with Greenforce Energy. Call the team on 02 9557 1648 to discuss going solar today.
