For the rooftop projects, construction on the 50MW project – phase I – is scheduled to begin in October 2014, with completion and grid connection expected in April 2015. Construction on the 30MW project – phase II – is scheduled to begin in May 2015, with completion and grid connection anticipated in August 2015. Construction of the 20MW DG project is scheduled to begin in October 2014, with completion and grid connection anticipated in March 2015.
