The China-based photovoltaic manufacturer will provide the necessary modules for two plants worth 75 MW each. The projects were selected under the South African Renewable Energy Programme’s first bidding round. Both are said to have secured a 20 year PPA with local utility Eskom.

"This transaction not only facilitates additional sales channel for our wafers, it also demonstrates our ability to provide integrated PV system solution in the global market," said company chairman Zhu Gongshan.
