Yingli Solar has surpassed 2 GW of cumulative solar panel deliveries in North and South America, the company said on Tuesday.
The more than 6 million panels that the company has delivered are now generating electricity for more than 85,000 solar projects across the two continents.
Robert Petrina, managing director of Yingli Green Energy Americas, described the development as a "historic milestone." He added, "The investments that we've made in building highly capable local teams allow Yingli to provide differentiated services to our sophisticated and fast-growing customer base."
Yingli estimates that more than 80,000 homes and 5,000 business and institutions in the Americas have installed PV systems with its solar panels. The company said its most popular product line was the YGE 60 Cell Series, which it described as "a versatile multicyrstalline solar panel suited for most solar applications, from off-grid systems to large-scale utility projects."
Since early 2013, Yingli has deployed more than 150 MW of its panels in Latin America and the Caribbean, becoming a leader in the region in fewer than six quarters.
"The United States remains an important market with strong growth potential, and we are very optimistic about the opportunities that it affords us," said Yingli Chairman and CEO Liansheng Miao. "In addition, emerging markets are growing in significance as Latin America's PV industry is catalyzed by reforms enabling the accelerated deployment of solar. With a network of five regional offices across the Americas and dedicated, experienced local teams, Yingli will continue to provide our local customers with high-quality solar panels and exceptional service."
In August, Yingli surpassed 10 GW of global PV module deliveries.
