Two San Diego firms that focus on large, commercial and government solar power projects have announced they’re procuring their solar panels from Chinese manufacturers, according to an article in the San Diego Union.
Borrego Solar, a San Diego developer, has signed a supplier deal with Yingli, a Chinese maker of photovoltaic cells, doubling its previous commitment. Borrego used Yingli panels on two local government projects, the San Diego Community College District and the San Diego County Water Authority.
As part of the agreement, Yingli will supply more than half the solar panels installed by Borrego this year.
Sempra Generation, another San Diego company, said this month it would get the majority of its solar panels for a massive solar farm it is building in the Arizona desert from a Chinese maker.
