U.S.: Around 180 jobs to be created via 16 solar power system installations

Nearly 65,000 Yingli Solar multicrystalline modules are being delivered between now and mid-year 2011, which will be installed at multiple Kaiser Permanente hospitals and office facilities in California. The modules were chosen by the project’s designer and installer, Swinerton Renewable Energy, as well as the plant’s owner and operator, Recurrent Energy.

"We chose to work with Yingli Green Energy Americas not only for their proven product, but also for their stellar customer service and flexibility," said George Hershman, vice president of Swinerton Renewable Energy. "High quality, reliable modules are a pre-requisite for our solar projects, which is why we look forward to continuing to partner with Yingli Green Energy Americas in the future."

"We are expanding our business across all major solar markets and have become one of the leading module suppliers in the United States," added Mr. Liansheng Miao, chairman and chief executive officer of Yingli Green Energy. "As today’s announcement demonstrates, we continue to be selected for some of the nation’s most visible and exciting solar projects."
