A Double Landmark for Green Hydrogen and (Made in America) Solar Panels

Redmond, WA and New York, NY (Feb. 22, 2023): Clean Energy Holdings (CEH) is pleased to announce the purchase from Philadelphia Solar USA Inc. of solar modules for a total nameplate capacity of 380 MWdc. The panels are Philadelphia Solar’s high efficiency “Made in America” 540W Phenex half-cell 10BB solar photovoltaic bifacial modules, to be manufactured at Philadelphia Solar’s new 1.2 GW state-of-the-art facility in the USA. The new factory will be featured at Select USA’s Investment Summit on May 1-4, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor (MD) as a milestone in clean energy Foreign Direct Investment and an example of how clean energy equipment manufacturing is re-shoring to the USA.

The panels will be installed at Clean Energy Holding’s “Clear Fork” project, which is set to produce 33,000kg/day of liquified green hydrogen (H2) using the electrical output from the solar farm. The 250MWac photovoltaic system will be installed on about 1000 acres of desert land, close to the town of Sylvester (TX), with the potential to expand to a total of 1 GWac of solar capacity. The project is one of the largest solar plus electrolyser projects in the US to date and is a major milestone in the adoption of green hydrogen as a key component in our global journey towards an affordable, sustainable and carbon neutral energy mix.

Mohammad Shehadeh, Chief Operating Officer of Philadelphia Solar USA, said “We at Philadelphia Solar are delighted to be providing our high efficiency Made in America panels to Clean Energy Holdings for this landmark project, which demonstrates America’s resurgence as a global clean energy leader and a manufacturing powerhouse. The incentives provided in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 are already accelerating the transition to a sustainable energy mix as well as creating well paid permanent jobs for skilled US workers as panel manufacturing is re-shored to the US.”

Nicholas Bair, CEO of CEH said, “We have signed a world leading manufacturer in the clean energy market, Philadelphia Solar.  Coupled with previously signed CEH OEM’s, Philadelphia Solar, delivers everythingrecentr related to Solar, providing the energy, to convert Hydrogen gas to Liquid Hydrogen and fuel mobility and space.  All CEH OEM platform alliance companies have the capability to manufacture key aspects of our projects in the USA, and when we choose to go outside of North America, they also have global manufacturing and supply.  We reiterate one of the core values of our company is to ensure that our long-term turnkey projects support the communities we operate in as well as being secure, available, and repeatable for generations, led by the United States, first.

Cornelius Fitzgerald, Co-founder, and President of CEH said “Clean Energy Holdings and our Alliance partners are continuing to lead green hydrogen development in the United States, and we are proud to be returning high paying reliable jobs, manufacturing to our shores, and delivering long term energy security for the United States.
