MADRID, SPAIN & BELTSVILLE, USA: SunEdison, North America’s largest solar energy services provider, announced that Hannover Leasing has purchased three SunEdison photovoltaic solar energy systems in Spain’s Lleida province. Under a long-term agreement, SunEdison will monitor, maintain and operate the systems, which have a combined capacity of 4.3 MW. Further details of the transaction were not disclosed.
The three ground mount systems -- 1.6 MW in Alamus; 1.6 MW in Borges Blanques; 1.1 MW in Cervia -– have been operating since September 2008.
“Hannover Leasing recognizes the long-term value of investing with companies which have a proven track record of constructing and operating photovoltaic solar systems.
