JinkoSolar to supply modules for 104 MW Utah Red Hills solar plant


China’s JinkoSolar announced today that it has been chosen to supply all of the modules required for the 104 MW Utah Red Hills Renewable Park, being developed by Swinerton Renewable Energy.

JinkoSolar will deliver more than 340,000 of its high-quality polycrystalline 72-cell panels to the project, which is owned by Norwegian renewable energy company Scatec Solar.

Swinerton will provide real-time data monitoring, plant control and asset performance optimization for the project, which will generate around 210 million kWh of electricity power per year thanks to the site’s excellent levels of solar irradiation.

Scatec Solar has also confirmed that the Utah Red Hills plant has agreed a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Pacificorp’s Rocky Mountain Power.

"The Red Hills project is a true testament of the positive progression in the sustainable energy industry, which JinkoSolar is proud to support," said JinkoSolar U.S. general manager Nigel Cockroft.

Swinerton VP George Hershman added that the project will bring much-needed jobs and clean power to the local Parowan residents, while Scatec Solar’s MD Luigi Resta added: "Our team on the ground is excited to be building the first utility-scale PV project in a state with such incredible solar potential."

Part of the $188 million financing for the PV plant has been supplied by Google, as well as investment from Prudential Capital Group. The project is being developed on a 650 acre site of privately owned land in Parowan, and will utilize single-axis trackers to make the most of the excellent levels of solar insolation.
