According to the California Solar Initiative, 1 GW of installed PV facilities would meet the energy needs of more than 200,000 average American households.

Among the many institutions in the Americas employing Yingli PV modules are Harvard University, Kaiser Permanente hospitals, the New York Jets team headquarters and Rio de Janeiro's Maracana Stadium.

"Solar energy has grown in importance as an investment opportunity throughout the Americas, said Yingli Chairman and CEO Liansheng Miao. “As the world's largest PV modules manufacturer, we are pleased to contribute to and propel the expansion of this vital clean energy source in the region and around the world."
