Suntech just announced that the Sydney Theater Company will use Suntech’s new, super-efficient Pluto technology to help power the building. The new system will produce 500 KW of energy and should be up and running by 2010. In conjunction with other energy efficiency measures, the solar panels should enable the Sydney Theatre Company to get by with 70% less power from the grid.

In a press release, Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech’s Chairman and CEO, commented on the news:

“It is a pleasure to support one of the cultural centerpieces of Sydney to reduce its carbon footprint through these sustainability initiatives. I hope that this project increases the awareness of climate change and demonstrates the huge role that solar can play in mitigating carbon emissions in Australia today.”

Suntech collaborates with the University of NSW in Australiain connection with advanced solar technologies. Dr. Shi said, “The high efficiency Pluto technology is a fantastic example of successful integration of world-class technology with commercial manufacturing techniques. There is enormous potential for solar to sustainably power our energy needs and we will continue collaborating with the University of NSWin connection with new generations of technology that facilitate more widespread adoption of solar.”
