SHANGHAI, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ – JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JKS), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that its 20MW solar PV power plant project in Shaya, Xinjiang Province and 10MW solar PV power project in Gonghe, Qinghai Province have been successfully passed the acceptance inspection conducted by the national grid. The company has so far successfully connected to the grid for more than 100MW of solar PV power projects.
The Shaya power plant is the company’s first project located in Xinjiang Province’s arid desert region. Located in Shaya Industrial Park in Shaya, Xinjiang Province, the solar power plants covers an area of 546,667m(2) comprising of approximately 80,000 JinkoSolar high-efficiencypoly-crystalline solar modules. The Gonghe power plant is located on the Tibetan Plateau in Gonghe County, Qinghai Province where it receives abundant sunlight for approximately 2,640-3,036 hours annually. The project comprises of approximately 40,000 JinkoSolar 250W poly-crystalline solar modules. The company deployed two professional operating & maintenance teams to monitor and maintain the plants 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
“Xinjiang’s Shaya region and Qianghai’s Gonghe County are rich in sunshine making solar power plant the ideal solution for electricity production. High-efficiency, reliability and quality aid JinkoSolar products in resisting the severe environments of these regions,” commented Mr. Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar’s CEO. “In 2013 China’s domestic solar industry has experienced a surge in development as a result of the support and guidelines issued by the Chinese government and the implementation of feed-in-tariff. China’s downstream market is gradually maturing as developers, investors and financial institutions are increasingly concerned about the quality, performance and reliability of the PV power plants, especially large-scale PV power plant projects that require heavy capital investment. Only quality and sustainable long-term output of the power can ensure the future return on the investment. We are pleased to announce this milestone and aim to have more than 200MW projects connected to the grid by the end of this year, then have aggregate amount of more than 500MW by the end of 2014, generating approximately 630Gwh of electricity and RMB590 million in revenue in 2014. With favorable government policies, the completion of the Shaya and Gonghe projects marks the beginning of an exciting period where we expect to successfully develop further downstream projects and generate solid returns.”
