JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. today announced that it will supply 19MW of solar modules for a PV project in Chile.
The project is located in Chile's Atacama Desert region which has one of the highest irradiation levels in the world. The 19MW solar power plant will consist of 61,000 JinkoSolar high-efficiency PID-free modules. The project is expected to generate approximately 50 million kWh of electricity annually, equivalent to the power consumption needs of about 30,000 local households, and reduce carbon emissions by over 30,000 tons annually.
"We are proud of what we have accomplished in Chile this year having become the one of the largest suppliers of PV modules with over 160MW of contracts signed," said Mr. Alberto Cuter, JinkoSolar's Sales Director for Emerging Markets. "The increase in demand for renewable energy has turned Chile into one of the regions' principal solar markets. This project sets a new milestone for JinkoSolar in the Latin American renewable energy market and demonstrates our commitment to clean energy development in Chile."
