"Our downstream strategy has taken root, with downstream partners like Foresight recognizing our project development capabilities and coming back to us multiple times to collaborate on downstream projects," said Mr. Xianshou Li, ReneSola's chief executive officer. "The development and sale of our 16.5 MW Membury project, which was the last part of our initial pipeline of 71 MW of projects we developed in the UK, further strengthens our foothold in the downstream market and contributes to our profitability and cash flows. With our deep pipeline of more than 500 MW of quality downstream projects, we are confident that we can continue to execute well on our downstream strategy and generate cash flow and profitability in 2016 and well into the future."

Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
