Photovoltaic manufacturer Yingli Solar will supply 28 MW of multicrystalline YGE Series PV modules to the State Grid Corp. of China. Yingli Green Energy’s modules will power the largest out of three solar projects being developed by SGCC in Zhangbei County, Hebei Province.
These installations, totaling 60 MW, are part of the second phase of China‘s National Wind/PV/Energy Storage and Transmission Joint Demonstration Project. According to the relevant requirements of the bid documents, the company will complete module delivery in the fourth quarter of 2013.
The project is a pilot that integrates different renewable energy technologies with smart transmission and storage technologies with the goal of predictably and reliably delivering green energy across the grid at-scale. The project will help SGCC fulfill its goal of creating a smart grid while also expanding renewable energy capacity in China.
