The Phono Solar 195 W monocrystalline modules used will generate electricity to power approximately 1250 average Romanian homes, or will displace the equivalent of 614.07 metric tons of CO2 per year. The installation took place in the Galati county in Romania, an area which receives (on an inclined surface of 35°) total annual radiation levels of 1,634kWh/m2. This project is the first PV project completed in the county.

Valentin Macec, Phono Solar Romania Country Manager, said: “We are delighted to be working with Electrasol Proiect again to deliver clean, affordable renewable energy to the general public in Romania.
