Chinese solar company JinkoSolar has announced this week a deal with EDO Renovaveis to supply 37.2 MW of solar modules to two of the latter company's solar projects in California, U.S.
Lone Valley Solar Park I and Lone Valley Solar Park II will receive 12.4 MW and 24.8 MW of high efficiency modules respectively, with JinkoSolar partnering with local independent power producer (IPP) EDP Renovaveis on the project.
Both parks are located in Lucerne Valley, San Bernadino County, and together will generate enough clean solar energy to power 5,000 local households a year. In total, JinkoSolar will supply 120,000 solar panels for the projects, which are expected to be connected to the grid later this year.
"We are excited to be working with EDP Renovaveis, an extremely reputable IPP company, on these two large projects," said JinkoSolar U.S. general manager, Nigel Cockroft. "This partnership with EDPR in the U.S. is the beginning of a great working relationship, and we are committed to providing excellent service and high quality modules to support these long-life power plants."
Despiting a prominent position as a leading Tier 1 supplier of solar modules, JinkoSolar has sought to diversify its business offering in recent months, adding a number of downstream projects to its portfolio, and has connected more than 100 MW of PV plants in China so far. The company has also widened its distribution network, signing a lucrative deal last month with India's PROINSO that will see the module company distribute its products in the country.
