NANJING, China, December 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Sunergy Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: CSUN) ("China Sunergy" or the "Company"), a specialized solar cell and module manufacturer, today announced that it had shipped 1.59 MW in solar panels to Emotion Energy who, in partnership with Edison Energy, installed solar panels for 117 houses in a residential rooftop project in Faifley, Scotland for the Knowes Housing Association Scotland.

This project, which addresses "fuel poverty," is the first of its kind within Scotland. According to the Department of Energy & Climate Change of the UK, households classified as living in "fuel poverty" are those who need to spend more than 10% of household income on energy to heat their homes. This PV solar rooftop project will allow 117 Knowes tenants to receive the electricity generated free of charge for 25 years. China Sunergy's customer Emotion Energy along with Edison Energy worked hard to install the project in two weeks' time, prior to a change in feed-in tariffs on December 12, 2011.

Emotion Energy's CEO, William Andrews, commented: "We are very satisfied with China Sunergy's product quality and service, and we hope to co-operate more with them in the U.K. We and China Sunergy are both committed to promoting renewable energy and a low carbon footprint in the future for the UK."

Stephen Cai, China Sunergy's CEO, agreed: "The UK is an important market, and we are very pleased to play our part in this very vivid example showing how solar energy can improve people's daily lives and keep them warm during this holiday season. We believe that by leveraging our superior product quality and word-of-mouth marketing by our various customers, China Sunergy can play a role in reducing fuel poverty not just in the U.K. but across the globe."
