In announcing the move, JinkoSolar indicated that France is a target market for the company. Our physical and legal presence in France is part of our strategy to establish a sustainable and long-term presence in this market. We have sold over 20 MW of modules in 2011 alone, said Chairman David Li, in a statement announcing the move.
France recently introduced open tenders for large-scale photovoltaic projects, which JinkoSolar believes validates its move into the market.
JinkoSolar will move into an energy positive building in Montpellier, which the company has said is in keeping with its goals to reduce its carbon footprint throughout its operations. Th building features 700 square meters of photovoltaic modules.
