Hanwha Q Cells to build 150-megawatt solar power plant in Wyoming
Hanwha Q Cells will build a 150-megawatt solar power plant in Wyoming.
The plant will be complete by the end of 2023. The 150-megawatt solar plant will be able to provide electricity to some 390,000 households per year, according to the company.
The produced electricity will be supplied to an undisclosed company in the United States. The two companies signed the power purchase agreement recently.
Hanwha Q Cells has been participating in various projects to increase its capacity in an effort to join the worldwide movement to reduce carbon emissions.
Last year, the company completed the construction of its 168-megawatt solar power plant in Texas. It is currently building a 380-megawatt-hour energy storage system in the same state.
In 2020, it won the right to build a solar power plant coupled with an energy storage system for a state-run project in Portugal. The manufacturer got the right to build six of the 12 generation capacity lots in the country's Alentejo and Algarve regions by 2024, with a capacity of generating 315 megawatts of electricity per year.
"Hanwha Q Cells will participate in the solar power plant projects more actively to contribute to the supply of clean energy," said Lee Koo-yung, CEO of Hanwha Q Cells.
