The modules will be part of a 143.2 MWp installation in Kern County, California, developed, built and owned by EDF Renewable Energy, formerly enXco. The first phase of approximately 50 MWp is anticipated to go online by the end of 2012, while the remainder of the project is targeted for completion by June 2013. The plant will generate enough clean energy to power the equivalent of about 35,000 homes annually and will offset about 74,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions every year.

Solar Frontier delivered its modules to the Catalina project site in 623 shipping containers using its award-winning packaging and shipping solutions. Securing their modules on a custom-designed steel-resin pallet with reusable plastic corner pieces, Solar Frontier has increased the module-container density of worldwide shipments by 130%, cut its logistics carbon footprint by more than 10%, all while lowering its module breakage rate to a record 0.002%. The new packaging solution ensures that there is also no more than 5 cubic meters of on-site waste per megawatt-peak of modules shipped, helping customers install projects with minimum ecological impact.
