China: GCL-Poly and CGN to work on one GW solar project

The solar farm is set to be located in Datong City, in China’s Shanxi Province. GCL-Poly has said it will be responsible for both the project¬ís development and construction. Datong City has been chosen to host the next International Solar Decathlon, in 2013.

"The purpose of this strategic cooperation between GCL-Poly and CGN is to kick-start solar farm investments systematically in Shanxi Province where the area has abundant solar resources," said GCL in a statement released.

Despite requests from pv magazine, the company declined to release any further information at this time.

It did say though that under China’s upcoming "Twelfth five-year plan", it is predicted that the target for installed solar capacity will be upped, from 10 GW to 15 GW.
