JinkoSolar will supply 21.5 MW of PV modules for the Searchlight solar project in the U.S. state of Nevada.
An affiliate of D. E. Shaw Renewable Investments (DESRI) and Bright Plain Renewable Energy (BPRE), two investors active in the solar industry, acquired the project from initial developer American Capital Energy. Signal Energy will handle EPC and O&M services for the installation. Signal Energy will oversee engineering, procurement and construction of the project — located in the town of Searchlight, about 80 kilometers south of Las Vegas — and will provide operation and maintenance services when the installation is completed.
The array will employ 70,525 high-efficiency JinkoSolar modules to generate approximately 45,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of energy annually for NV Energy customers once it is connected to the grid at the end of 2014.
JinkoSolar's recent global activities have included the supply of 40 MW of modules to solar developer 8i for a project in the Valparaiso region of central Chile. In China, the company last month connected a 100 MW solar power plant in the costal area of Xiangshui in Jiangsu Province, to the grid.
