China Sunergy to Build Two Solar Power Plants in the U.K.

China Sunergy Co., a maker of modules used to generate power from the sun’s rays, plans to build two solar farms in the southwest county of Cornwall in the U.K.

The projects, with a capacity of 5 megawatts each, are expected to be completed by April 1, 2013, Sunergy said in a statement yesterday. It will supply modules for the plants.
