Chinese solar manufacturer JinkoSolar has emphasized its downstream credentials by announcing the connection of its first 100 MW of solar projects.
With generation starting at the 20 MW Shaya PV plant in Xinjiang province and the 10 MW Gonghe scheme in Qinghai, JinkoSolar CEO Kangping Chen announced the milestone yesterday before stating ambitious targets for Chinese project development.
Chen says the vertically integrated wafer, ingot, cell and module manufacturer wants to have 200 MW connected in China by the end of the year and 500 MW generating around 630 GWh/year and RMB590 million (US$96.4 million) in revenue by the end of next year.
The Shaya project, occupying almost 547,000m2 in the Shaya Industrial Park is JinkoSolar's first in the Xinjiang desert region and features around 80,000 of the company's modules.
The Gonghe project, on the Tibetan plateau in Gonghe County, uses around 40,000 JinkoSolar modules.
